The Virginia Creeper, Parthenocissus quinquefolia, is native to eastern North America. Although it is an invasive plant, it is often used on buildings to provide shade and cooling. Unlike some destructive plants, Virginia Creeper adheres by disks rather than roots so it does not disturb masonry. When it grows on other plantings like trees and shrubs, the shade it causes can kill the underlying plant. This patch of wild Virginia Creeper is growing out of the ditch, over the rocks and up a Spruce trunk on the other side of the road from my house.
