Virginia creeper (parthenocissus quinquefolia) is a prolific deciduous climber. It climbs surfaces using small forked tendrils tipped with strongly adhesive pads. The leaves are composed of five leaflets joined from a central point on a leafstalk. The leaflets have a toothed margin. Leaves can turn a decorative red in autumn. Flowers are small and greenish, produced in clusters in late spring. They mature in late summer or early autumn into purplish-black berries. The berries are not toxic to birds and provide a valuable winter food source.
