Parthenocissus quinquefolia (Virginia Creeper)
Found in fields and forests and in dry soils and wet, this native vine is one of the most widely distributed species in Virginia and is well established throughout the eastern United States. It can be a vigorous spreader, but its attractive foliage and low maintenance can make it a feasible option for difficult-to-grow, shady, droughty, low-fertility, erosion-prone places.
