My sister is cleaning up my dad's shady yard and wants to know what this vine is. The photo is from the backside and looks a lot like a wild grape. TIA.

This would have to be a wild thing as dad would never have purchased a grape vine.

I agree, Vitis sp. We have the Southern Fox Grape (Vitis rotundifolia) that grows wild here in Florida but I don't know if it's found in Indiana. I googled and a here's a few more for comparison:

Fox Grape/Skunk Grape:
Fox Grape (Vitis labrusca)

Riverbank Grape/Wild Grape:

Thanks so much for the info. The IL wildflower link was especially helpful. We're only 20 miles from the Lake Michigan shore and less than that from the IL state line.
