What is Kudzu?

Quick Facts

What is Kudzu you say? Its an amazing plant. So amazing that some say its an alien species. The Japanese love it, but it grows normal in Japan. In the American South its a predator.

Really, what is it?

Kudzu (Pueraria lobata) was brought to the United States in 1876 for a Japanese Exposition in Philadelphia, and basically "escaped". In Japan it generally grows like a normal plant, however the American South is a perfect climate for it. Introducing Kudzu was like introducing a match to gasoline, and the results can now be easily seen.

About the PDF files

Many of kudzu sites were taken down or moved. In these cases I have attempted to find the new links and keep them current. In others, they were too valuable to lose, so I have made archives available as PDF files. If you cannot view PDF's, please download the free reader.
