Unidentified Colorful Berries on a Vine

Saturday afternoon.

These colorful (but unidentifed) berries on a vine caught my eye! Highland Park, Pittsburgh.

The colors looked unreal.

Blog Reader L has sent Plant ID  “The plant is ampelopsis.”

“Porcelain-berry (Ampelopsis brevipedunculata) was originally brought to the United States around the 1870’s as a landscape plant. Porcelain-berry is now recognized as an invasive plant, which can quickly overwhelm and displace native plants.Sep 7, 2006”

thanks for the info L

  1. Great images Ruth. You captured the crisp colors. I am thinking wild grapes. Highland Park is full of them. I could be, and probably am, wrong. They look like the vines that grow in the trees behind our home.
