What is this, please?

Asked October 27, 2018, 10:49 AM EDT

I spotted this unusual plant in a ditch on the road where I walk, near my home! I’ve tried several apps to try to identify it...to no avail! Please help! I live in Bay County.

Good morning! I've been researching this plant and I believe it is called a greenbrier. From your photos, it is difficult to tell if this is a scrambling vine with small spines along the stem, and I could not see the leaf. However, I have attached a link with a photo that you could possibly ID this on your own. Hope this helps. http://dendro.cnre.vt.edu/dendrology/syllabus/factsheet.cfm?ID=127
