Q

I have a vine growing on my fence that has sparse dark blue berries and thick red stems. What plant is this? Image showing this plant can be seen at http://themodbod.files.wordpress.com/2007/09/ivy-to-use.jpg

Answer(s)

A

The link to the image was very helpful.  The vine is the Virginia Creeper.  It is a common vine in our area and has beautiful fall color.  Unfortunately, those beautiful dark blue berries are NOT edible.  If you have any further questions about this plant please feel free to call our office at 801-851-8462.
