porcelain vine, Ampelopsis brevipedunculata

This grape relative is becoming invasive in some areas. Looking at the flowers one could wonder why we brought it here. The berries are the story. To quote Wiki, they can be "green, blue, purple, pink, or yellow with black or brown speckles", all on the same vine. Porcelain vine is now in CT, DE, GA, IA, IL, KY, MA, MD, MI, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, VA, and WI. Hamilton Co OH, 7/13/15. Grape family, Vitaceae.
