Parthenocissus tricuspidata
Boston ivy

Blue to bluish black with a white waxy bloom, the 1/4" berries are borne below the leaves from September through October. The fruit are most obvious after the leaves fall when they are accompanied by the shortly persistent red leaf petioles. Birds readily eat the berries.
