These are growing at my friends house and we have no idea what it is. It would give us peace of mind knowing the name of this plant. We have searched google up and down under ground plants and ivy's but can't seem to figure it out.

Looks like one of the poison ivy family... a Toxicodendron radicans, possibly (L.) Kuntze subsp. negundo (Greene) Gillis

Not Toxicodendron. Looks more like Campsis or Wisteria to me.
Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans)
Wisterias (Wisteria)

Thank you!

At first, I was worried it could possibly be poison ivy but the more I looked, it didn't look the same.

If it blooms flowers soon it will be easier to tell! I appreciate the responses. Thank you purpleinopp!

Note that plant has pinnate compound leaves that are opposite in arrangement along the vine/stem. This cannot be Poison Ivy (Toxicodendron radicans), Wisteria (Wisteria sp.) or any other species that has alternate arrangement of leaves.

I agree with the suggestion by purpleinopp - that is likely to be Trumpet Vine (Campsis radicans).

It may be Campsis radicans; it also reminds me of Cape Honeysuckle (Tecoma capensis)



Or even Esperanza (Tecoma stans)

I don't know the Tecoma species very well, but Campsis radicans can be pretty commonly found.

Trumpet Vine has some rather specific (and annoying) habits which may separate it from other look-alikes - even before you get to see any flowers. It really likes to sucker from its root system - which can range far and wide on established plants - and thus make more of itself in places where you might not want it. It also will climb most anything that it can attach itself to with its aerial rootlets.

We had a deep reddish-orange variety of Tecoma capensis at a home we once owned here in Florida and like Campsis radicans, it was an extremely rampant grower! That Cape Honeysuckle was really beautiful when in full bloom but it clambered over and entire chain link fence, climbed up and over other shrubs and plants, climbed high up into the trees and also traveled along the open ground, it was a pest! At another home we own, we have a light orange variety that grows more like a spindly shrub and has not spread at all since we purchased the property in 3 years ago.
