I just moved into my new apartment a few months ago in east TN and once it started to warm up, this "little" guy sprung up. I have no idea what it is. Can you all help me?

It appears to have two different types of leaves and it is growing from the dip where the basement window is. Thank You!

Yes, it's a wild grape vine. We have them all over here. They are tenacious and will come back from the roots even if sprayed. If you can dig it out, that would be good. But that might not be allowed at the apartment. They don't always/usually produce fruit that's edible to humans. Of course, you can always keep it pruned and trained a bit. It doesn't flower. What you see is what you get.

You're welcome. I was just out pruning one that sprang up by the deck steps.
