It's very close to one of the variations of Morus rubra ..

So I would say it's in Moraceae but that's probably wrong if it's a vine.

Broussonetia papyrifera looks close, is it possible it's going to grow into something else like a tree? Hilarious!

I think you are right, Janet, Morus rubra. It grows wild here and that is what the young leaves look like.

I think Janet got it right the second time with Paper Mulberry (Broussonetia papyrifera). It often gives the appearance of being a vine when it is young.

Tricky blighters aren't they! Thanks Christine, they are very similar. Smiling

Thanks for that Kent, I thought Broussonetia papyrifera fitted the bill so it's good to know it does start out looking like a vine.
