Is this a weed?

Asked April 28, 2018, 9:55 AM EDT

I'm not sure if this is a weed or a landscape specimen planted years ago. Can you identify it for me and let me know if it's an invasive that should be eliminated or something desirable to have in the home garden? Thanks!

This is wintercreeper, a kind of creeping euonymus, which is a non-native invasive vine. (There is also a little English ivy in the photo, which is also invasive. ) Both should be replaced.
