    In some situations it can be invasive.

    Is this your plant? It supposed to flower? I don't believe it is Virginia creeper though. The stem is too smooth. It reminds me of something but honestly not the creeper. Ginsing- like but I don't think it is that either

    I do not think creeper either. Virginia creeper has individual leaves and stems,,this is like one leaf with five points.

    Could it be a Humulus japonicus, Japanese Hop vine?

    Thank you all for your efforts in solving my question about this plant.

    2ofus, I think you got it. It is beautiful but now that I have read about it, I think it's dangerous. One of my gardener friends in town planted a seed packet of field flowers or something. She put it around a little paved area. It's very lush but you can see it is a strong plant.

    I didn't realize how may like vines were out there. It's really hard to see the difference....

    The leaf in question is lobed, vs. the compound leaf of Va. creeper.
