Ornamental Climber seen in Philadelphia.

No flowers when the picture was taken in the last week of June.


I hope Vitis arbuscula


Thanks for the suggested id. I too was looking at ornamental Vitaceae options.


At first, I thought it may be a grape of some type, but I am leaning toward Menispermum canadense aka Common Moon Vine – non-edible.


Thanks for the id of this climber.
