Boston Ivy?

(Question)

Is the attached photos Boston Ivy?

(Answer)

Dear gardener, although I am having a bit of difficulty zooming into the picture, it seems by its growing habit, that it is indeed a Boston Ivy (Parthenocissus tricuspidata).

This Asian ivy, from the grape family, is known for its quick growing habit, its 3-lobed shiny green leaves resembling maple and its beautiful fall colour.

I have added a link for further identification, particularly at this time of the year: http://dendro.cnre.vt.edu/dendrology/syllabus/factsheet.cfm?ID=301
