FFTD: Parthenocissus

Posted on

This is a Parthenocissus Inserta or False Virginia Creeper, thicket creeper, grape woodbine or just woodbine. It doesn’t have the hairy stems like a true Virginia Creeper and its leaf edges are smoother. They like to peak out from the fence. ~Vic

    Here we call it Wood Ivy…I love how it turns red in the fall.

          Yes, it is. Reminds me of Kudzu at times. At least Kudzu doesn’t have poisonous berries or make you itch.

      That was taken in my side yard. They are all over the fence.

          I thought so, too. When I saw it, framed that way, I grabbed my phone. I’ve loved photography since I was a ‘tween. I nearly wore out a Kodak Instamatic that my paternal GM gave when I was 12 (I’m probably repeating myself, here, so…).
