Unidentified plant or vine

Asked September 1, 2019, 9:41 AM EDT

I cannot tell if this is one or two plants. The leaves seem different. I want to remove the plant from our yard. Is it poisonous or harmful to people or pets? Thank you.

This is porcelainberry, a non-native invasive vine which is a big issue around D.C.

Here is information about how to get rid of it (the links are important): https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/porcelainberry
