Just had a neighbor tell me that this is ampelopsis arborea aka peppervine. Thanks!

Peppervine (Ampelopsis arborea) is considered a native.

Porcelain Berry (Ampelopsis brevipedunculata) is one that is considered invasive. The USDA map shows it as far south as Georgia but not in Florida.

Peppervine may be native, but it is extremely aggressive and a serious nuisance here.
