This is growing in my sister's back yard here in Lugoff, Sc. Does anyone know what it is?
SOLVED: What is this.
This is a grape leaves plant. To be more specific it is a white grape leaves plant. Some people plant these for the grapes and others also use the leaves to make food. They stuff them with rice and roll them then cook them.
Source: I have two of them in my personal garden.
in my head i've ruled out Manihot, Tetrapanax, Fig.....i'm thinking maybe a Fatsia.
Too far south for me. If it was here, I'd bust out with Firmiana simplex.
That is definitely not a Grape (Vitis sp.) of any kind, I'm sorry to say.
i know they are weedy and invasive but it doesn't stop me from admiring them (from afar).
