invasive vine

lovenrage(z6/7 raleigh)July 29, 2014

When i first saw these leaves I thought it was a grape but then when I saw the full extent of its growth I questioned it. It's completely taken over the edge of the field.

This is in NE Massachusetts. It has taken over an entire sunny, field edge, There was no fruit to be found. It has tendrils. I do have more photos. Thanks so much!

It looks like a grape to me.

It could be porcelain vine, ampelopsis brevipedunculata. It varies in the shape of the leaves and resembles wild grape. If it is, this fall it may have blue berries instead of grapes.

yeah it's looking like a grape, I've just never seen it grow like this.

We have muscadine down here - it can look like that. But you could also check out the porcelain vine suggestion; I forgot how similar that can look and it has tendrils too.
