Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia).  The flowers of the Virginia creeper are small, green, and borne in clusters on long stems which appear in June to July.  The plant is often seen growing as a vine or single upright short stem on the forest floor or as a long vine on tree trunks.  It has five leaflets, making it easy to differentiate between Virginia creeper and poison ivy.  Its dark blue grape-like fruits are poisonous to humans but not to most other forms of wildlife.
