I live in Minnesota and this started blooming in a tree line. It is wild, looks like a vine almost...does anyone know what it is? I saw three leaves and was wondering if it was poison oak or ivy...
Thanks!

Are there thorns on the stems? It looks like it could be some sort of berry bramble. Maybe gooseberries?

Not poison ivy, at any rate. Smiling

I agree
As Yogi Berra said, “It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”

No thorns, more of a stick-like stem. It could be creeping charlie?

The plant I call Creeping Charlie has more of a soft, floppy (but tough) stem. Maybe you're lucky enough to have a thornless gooseberry? (google "gooseberry" to see if the leaves look right to you)
