Practical Weed Science for the Field Scout: Corn and Soybean

Virginia creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia)

Perennial broadleaf

Virginia-creeper Virginia-creeper
Virginia-creeper

A perennial, often woody vine that climbs on other objects or trails along the ground. Primarily a weed of fencerows, landscapes and vineyards but can occur in no-till cropping systems. Leaves consist of three to seven (usually five) leaflets that originate from a common point. Leaflets are from 2-1/2 to 5 inches long and have toothed margins. Leaves turn red to maroon in the fall. Flowers are small and inconspicuous, greenish white in color. Stems climb by tendrils and can root where they touch the ground. Virginia creeper is sometimes confused with poison ivy. However, this weed has three leaflets unlike Virginia creeper which usually has five.
