Notes:

This looks like some kind of climbing fern & is climbing up a camellia – is it a weed?

    you’re exactly right: Japanese climbing fern

    It can be very invasive…often brought in on baled pine straw.

    Dear Wise One, If it were in your garden, would you pull it up? Before I got this evaluation, a neighbor told me what she thought it was & said a friend of ours uses it in floral arrangements. Would it be worth putting it in a pot with a trellis & using it as such – is it evergreen? How does it multiply? Don’t think I want it all over my garden. Thanks!

    I’d pull it up. It can really become a nuisance.
