Coral Vine is an invasive species on St. John.
It's extremely hard to get rid of because it can grow up from
its network of thick underground tuberous roots, so you would
need to get a hoe pick and dig out all the roots. It goes though
cycles whereupon the vegetation is tick and then it dies back
to where it is hardly evident. The good news is that it has a
pretty flower and it only seems to grow along roadsides and at
the periphery of cleared areas.
