Parthenocissus quinquefolia
Virginia Creeper

Like its better-known cousin Boston Ivy, the groundcover or vine known as Virginia Creeper has a vigorous clasping growth habit when allowed to scale walls, has brilliant shades of purple and scarlet fall color that follow the shiny dark green summer foliage, and has miniature grapes as its fruit (often hidden by foliage, but eaten and dispersed by birds when ripe).
