found this plant in my yard, and I have been baffled. I found it near many other poison oak plants. However, it does not share the poison oak’s leaf shape.

    still can’t see it…
    but from the thumbnail img… looks like Virginia creeper.
    native vine that is an important bird resource, provides beautiful autumn colour,but is a bit too seedy to grow in an intensively planted garden.
    So… where the area is left wild, Virginia creeper is a great vine.

    That plant seems very much like one We use in Finland for fences and shrubs, it grows fast,shade or sunny areas and spreads rapidly, roots spread more sideways than down so about 6 -15 inch depth,it can grow pretty wild without propper care and can become a problem if unchecked, with good gidance and observation will turn into a perenial lush fence, cold weather,snow and drought do not affect it.
