Found this in our woods, growing from the ground. Leaves of three, but this is flowering, and not like any image of poison ivy flowers. Anyone know what this is? This is grandkids' newly cleared play area in the woods, and we don't want to get rid of native plants unnecessarily.

Lot of people are posting pictures of dewberry brambles this spring...
The grandkids can eat the berries without worry.

Incidentally... the other plant in the picture looks like a native azalea...

Ok, feeling like an idiot, yes it's a wild berry, probably blackberry. It's small and sparse because it's in the deep woods. They're all over the place on the edges, tall, thick, brambly and full of blossoms. I just had never looked that closely at the blossoms. Moved in here last summer, never get the berries because the birds beat us to them.

Yes, we discovered several wild azaleas, light pink. And there's something in orange as well, has flowers more like honeysuckle though. Can't get close enough to tell if it's a vine around a dead sapling, or is itself a tall plant. Working on that. Thank You!

Nice place. If you have native azaleas you have the makings of an awesome garden!
