Parthenocissus quinquefolia, or Virginia Creeper, is native to the eastern half of the continental US. It is a perennial, that grows in open woods, thickets, along roads and railroads in ditches, in yards and disturbed places, and also is a very strong climbing vine that easily scales up trees and buildings, sometimes completely covering them. It blooms in mid summer with green-yellow flowers, and sometimes blooms again in fall.

More information will be made available soon about this species and telling it apart from others.
