Hello residents of Baton Rouge.

I am embarking on a project researching everyone's favorite plant, the Kudzu vine. I am looking to find a place here in Baton Rouge (the closer to the LSU campus the better) where I can find some kudzu samples, preferably samples with leaves on them for the Spring.

Thanks, let me know if you guys have any ideas.

I have never seen Kudzu down here. I know where I lived in East TN that stuff would take over the whole side of a mountain and was a pain in people's butt.

I've seen it in Mississippi . Can't remember seeing it here , although I wouldn't doubt that it's around someplace .

Yeah, it's weird, I know I've seen it before and surely it's here, but I can't find it anywhere. Also I looked up maps of Kudzu spread online and Louisiana is on it every time.

We have it in isolated areas around here...but it's not to the point of taking over entire moutains like it is in Appalachia.

For some reason, I can only think of one spot in Louisiana where I know for sure I've seen Kudzu. On St. Mary Street (La 1) in Thibodaux, across the street from McDonald's. I know there's some closer, but this is the only example where I know the exact location of some Kudzu. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Go to Atlanta...the city spends millions each year trying to keep the stuff from taking over the highway system.
