This is a vine that has spread quickly the past week.
Looks like Parthenocissus quinquefolia, Virginia Creeper.
Yeah, I think so, too.
So is it a weed to be eradicated or do I cultivate it? does it bloom? I have it infiltrating my ivy.
The ivy is a weed that should be eradicated…
The virginia creeper has a lot of desirable qualities.
The birds eat the seeds, the leaves turn a beautiful colour in the autumn, and unlike ivy, it doesn’t kill trees, and plays nice with other native plants…
Ivy kills everything….
