Can anyone ID this

I was doing a "walking tour" of Philadelphia on Friday and came across this thing. Never seen anything like it before - looks like tiny English Ivy leaves but they are bumpy.

Looks like a Rubus (bramble) species to me but likely one not hardy here so I do not know it.

Hi Viktoria, no that's not it. I have dealt with that nasty stuff in my own garden - I presently have a "nice" crop in my front flower beds. It's really bad for me because the thorns act just like poison ivy on me if I get scratched by it. Actually went out this morning to attack it and got eaten by mosquitoes - I'm out of Off.

Thanks for looking.

Found it at Lowes for sale - Creeping Raspberry. It is a rubus - good job Viktoria. Thanks.

Rasberrys... that's the name... but still the leaves seem very smal for a rasberry..

I picked them for money as a kid :wink:

This stuff was ground cover. Normal raspberry and blackberry plants are upright thorny canes. I have some wild stuff growing iin my garden - it is hard to get rid of.
