Yes, I think you are right! I don't know why I thought it was poisonous when I first saw it, I guess it is a decorative Ivy?

I moved into this house and the former owners let the back garden go pretty badly and I have been trying to pick up the pieces. You would not believe how many dead plants I found in pots back there after the first freeze Sad

This is a pretty vine, and it will turn a gorgeous red in the Fall.

You can't hurt it, cut in however you want it to be. And Karen is correct, it will be a most wonderful brilliant red in the fall.

I'm sorry but as old as my eyes are, I just don't see this as being a Virginia Creeper.

I agree with greene. I don't think it is Virginia Creeper. Rather resembles the Boston Ivy we used to have growing on our house.

I see that all of these are in the same botanical name of Parthenocissus.
That's interesting, I did not know that.
