I am looking for some Kudzu cuttings, I have Coleus cuttings to trade, or can send money to pay postage.

Warning here in Texas they are out-lawed, it is a very invasive plant. It was planted here to prevent soil erosion but have taken over everywhere it was planted. It seems to be use in oriental cooking. Not a even nice looking plant.

If you travel to the southern states, you will find it growing wild - I know of no place that sells the plants. EBay has vendors that sell the seeds.

I can send you as much Kudzu as you'd like...however I'd like to make sure I'm not gonna go to jail or be fined for sending to a place that doesn't allow kudzu...it is very invasive here...have it all over the place and have sprayed every type of poison (allowable) we can figure to get rid of it...it takes over my trees on my back fenceline and on our neighbors fence lines and covers our sheds if we allow it to and don't keep it cut back...the flowers do smell wonderful and are even pretty to me...i've also been told they are edible...however the hassle isn't worth it for me if i had a choice...oh and it will also choke out all your other vegetation it can get ahold of from trees it runs up to other vines and flowers...

Kudzu is eating the South. It can NOT be contained, so don't even think about trying, unless you live somewhere north of Nome, Alaska.

Yes, I have to agree with other posts, I live in Nortth Carolina, and see kudzu Everywhere, it swallows trees buildings EVERYTHING, extremely invasive, now comes with its own beetle, who was also imported, should def. research kudzu before trying to grow it, don't want to start a kudzu epidemic :)
