Kudzu is an invasive species of vine, introduced to the southern United States’ highway system by my great, great Uncle Friday.

Well, not really. But that’s the family legend!

Kudzu can grow up to 90ft. in a year and doesn’t have a natural predator in North America, making it a pain in the britches to eradicate. Music for this piece was composed by Reilly Jones.
