Description:

From twenty paces, I thought this was White Briony, then on closer inspection I thought I was wrong.
Now I'm just undecided!
Many small clumps of a stout-stemmed light green plant, with long tendrils - so clearly a climber - and ivy-shaped leaves.
I would expect White Briony leaves to be more deeply lobed, with five lobes, not three.
