There are tons of vines here around Pittsburgh.
I was surprised when I got here.
And distrought when the bindweed took over my front yard.
We've gor honeysuckle, nightshade, boston ivy, virginia creeper, and on and on.
But THIS vine, I have seen only on my friend's house.
Can someone name it for me?Thumb of 2012-06-04/crittergarden/a02123

Vitis (Wild Grapevine), several species in Pennsylvania. Sometimes used as ornamental vine in northern states, but can be unruly: http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=vitis

Looks like "Boston Ivy" or Japanese Creeper" to me. Parthenocissus tricuspidata.
