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.

- My petunias are horribly sticky - I assume thrips are in control although I have tried to keep them washed off (insecticidal soap) and sprayed with a systemic (orthonex). Is there anything else I might try? Would a dormant oil spray work, and if so when would I use it? Also, there are small worms that are probably chomping the blossoms. What would work to prevent or kill them? How do worms can get into my flower boxes, that are at least 6 feet off the ground?
