Feature:

Thrives in fields, borders, roadsides and open woods.
Late spring to the end of summer.
Can spread outwards by 2m or more in a single season.
Because of its quick growth, clinging vines and broad
leaves, it can overwhelm and pull down cultivated plants
including shrubs and small trees. It's aggressive
self-seeding (seeds can remain viable as long as 30 years)
and the success of its creeping roots
(they can be as long as 3–4 m) cause it to be termed as
a persistent weed.
