Virginia creeper, Maiden grapes five-leafed, also Parthenocissus five-leafed (lat. Parthenocissus quinquefolia)
Tree-like deciduous vine, a species of the genus Maiden grape (parthenocissus) of the grape family (Vitaceae), the type species of this genus. A fast-growing vine, in nature reaching a length of 20-30 m. Young shoots are reddish, then dark green. It grows by climbing on smooth surfaces with the help of antennae with five to eight branches ending in a sticky pad (suction cup) measuring 5 mm. The presence of these suckers is a feature that distinguishes this species from the closely related maiden grape attached (parthenocissus vitacea). The leaves are palpatosyllabic of five, less often three (more often in young shoots) leaflets. The leaves are petiolate ovate, attached to one central petiole. The tip of the leaflet is pointed, the edges are sawn. The leaves are green, dull above; bluish-green, pubescent below. In autumn, they acquire a bright red, crimson color on the sunny side and light yellow in the shade. Small greenish flowers are collected in apical inflorescences - strongly branched panicles with a clear central axis, on which there are from 80 to 150 flowers. Flowering in late spring. Dark blue, almost black fruits with a diameter of 5-7 mm ripen in late summer or early autumn. Berries contain oxalic acid, are inedible for humans, but are food for birds in winter.
