Personally, I have absolutely no idea about the difference between a kudzu (never heard of it) and a trumpet vine (never heard of it), so what the theological significance of the species is I cannot say. However, I notice Grandmère Mimi has posted a very scholarly account on the eschatological allusions contained within trumpet vine imagery, over at WOUNDED BIRD.
The kudzu is an invasive species found all over the American south. I remember as a child seeing entire fields covered in the stuff. It would climb up trees creating a bed you could jump into from above. Great fun.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KudzuDon't know much about the trumpet vine.
