Is this vine trying to kill me?


It doesn't look like any of the poison plants I know, but the shine on has me concerned that it's going to cause a nasty rash. Any one able to identify? Those are five leaves per grouping if it's hard to count.

It looks like it might be strain of Virginia Creeper. The berries are toxic if eaten but I don't think there is an contact problem with the leaves. Perhaps take a twig into your local garden centre or agricultural office.

Looks a bit like a Woodbine vine.

Berries are toxic to humans, but the birds sure love them after they ripen.

As itch says take a section to your Agriculture extension office and get a trained opinion.

They grow wild in the Rockies , and are good cover for fences, rock walls, even the side of a cabin.
