Kudzu in Ontario
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Debra
Posted on: March 02, 2005

I was just wondering if you knew of anyone that as grown kudzu here in Ontario. I did a project on it for school last year and know the damage this plant can do under the right conditions. I was surprised to see that you sell the seeds. I would love to grow this plant, as it is beautiful and useful, but I would just like to know, if anyone has tried it, without the plant taking over.

Kudzu (Pueraria lobata) is not hardy in Ontario, so it does not become invasive like it does in the southern United States. It is rated hardy in zones 7-10. In Ontario is must be grown as an annual.
