  • If it has 3 leaves and has white flowers on it at the begining of the spring then it is poison ivy. We have something that looks similar. Try googling poison ivy photos. They all look different.

  • It is a morning glory vine. I looked it up plus I own a garden center. They will take over of you don't control it now. You will have to make sure you pull up all the roots and make sure you get rid of it before it blooms or else the seeds will blow to other locations in your yard.
