Re: ivy question

Pam, I know there is ivy with berries of other colors than green, but
I've only seen pictures of it; never in person.  Also, my ivy that
berries is high up on the trees - it generally does not flower until
it matures  which it will do at about 20 years or when it reaches the
top of whatever it is climbing.  About the only time I really see the
berries is when wind blows off a mature branch with them.  I do not
recall seeing ivy with red berries anywhere, tho'.

I am thinking you are seeing something other than ivy, but I don't
know what it is.  What's the leaf like?

Mature ivy leaves do not look like "normal" ivy leaves - they lose
the points and become more oval shape with a long drip tip.
