We have a shed that is half covered with ivy and then this showed up having grown all
thru the ivy.
I've looked up elder berry, I know virginia creeper. It has this tri-pointed leaf. The small leaves start out slender and then they grow points. You can see it starting on the upper left leaf. The leaves are individual and not in whorls or clusters. The berries don't seem to be eaten. They are purple and are turning brown. I have not seen any bird or squirrel activity in the area.
I sent the picture to a friend who is a Master Gardener and hoping she can send it up the line to the WSU extension office.
ps - I taped down the big leaf so we could all get a good look at it.
UPDATE: blooming english ivy - who knew....?
