Parthenocissus quinquefolia
Parthenocissus quinquefolia
Common Name: Virginia Creeper
In spring, leaves composed of five leaflets emerge that are bronze to dull green in summer then turn purple to crimson-red in fall. In late spring to early summer, clusters of small, greenish-white flowers appear on this deciduous, climbing woody vine. It is one of the first woody plants to color in the fall. It attaches to flat surfaces by tendrils ending in adhesive tips. Pollen is gathered by bees from the flowers and birds enjoy the dark blue to black berries in summer. Deer, quail, squirrels and wild turkey also browse leaves and stems.
