Kudzu
Pueraria lobata* /Pea Family
(INN) Rank 1

The pretty purple and yellow flowers of kudzu smell like grape soda! This vine has been called "a vegetative form of cancer" due to its incredibly fast growth. The plants were once planted for erosion control, however they quickly overgrew other plants and became a terrible weed. Unfortunately, I didn't have to go far to find these flowers, they were growing in my back yard! :(
