The name Woodbine is very frequently misapplied to this high climbing or trailing vine with its numerous tendrils. It is commonly confused with the Poison Ivy, but can be easily distinguished by its five-parted leaf, while the leaf of the latter is three-parted. The short-stemmed leaflets are elliptical in shape with tapering points, and the outer half is coarsely toothed. The surface is usually smooth, and the colour is dark green above and lighter underneath. The insignificant yellowish green flowers grow in irregular, broadly branching clusters. These are succeeded in the fall by small, round, dark blue berries. At this season, the foliage turns to a beautiful red or scarlet and is very attractive and greatly admired. The Virginia Creeper sprawls over everything within its reach, and is extensively cultivated about the porches and fences of suburban homes. The berry is not edible. This vine is common in woods and thickets from Quebec to Manitoba, Florida, Texas and Mexico.
