Q.Poison Ivy??

Zone 61021 | Anonymous added on July 7, 2022 | Answered

Hello, I am trying to identify this plant. At first I thought it was poison ivy, but each one has 2 rounded leaves as well, so I don’t think it’s poison ivy. I have downloaded and tried 2 different apps and I do t think they are right either – the closest was American ginseng and dwarf ginseng. If you can help that would be great. I do t know of this helps, but I do live in the woods in northern Illinois.

It looks like Virginia creeper. The heart shaped leaves are the seedling's first set, which always look different from the second set of leaves. It does not look like ginseng after seeing them in the wildflower pics below. You may find more possibilities there.
