    Pretty ivy. It is a safe ivy as it will not cause a rash. Grows like crazy. Looks like English ivy to me.

    This maybe a cultivars in in the juvenile growth stage from the English ivy/common ivy (Hedera helix) species. Check it out and see if you have a match. Poison ivy has 3 leaflets while your plant has single palmately five-lobed leaf. Best wishes! https://www.fs.fed.us/database/feis/plants/vine/hedhel/all.html
