Hello, gardening community. What is this viney monster? It's surfacing in several areas of my yard. Is it a keeper? Thanks in advance.

Looks like Virginia Creeper to me. If it is that I'd pull up all you see. It will overrun everything!

I agree with Virginia creeper. I have it everywhere here and am trying to kill it off as fast as I can.

VC. A weed I love/hate. The birds spread them everywhere in my garden. Not exaggerating, literally everywhere. I pull hundreds, maybe a thousand or more seedlings every year all growing season long. Some get away from me and become vines and grow incredibly quickly, rooting along the ground as they go.
But I love it all the same and will always keep at least one somewhere and even let it seed. Lovey dubby

It is beautiful in the fall, but I agree, it's a rampant grower.

It does have gorgeous color in fall, depending on where it's growing. I rarely see the beautiful color here in Florida and it's a rampant vine here too ... crawling across the ground, climbing up into the trees and along fences. It can take over if given even the slightest chance. Smiling
