What you are referring to is called Virginia Creeper, a five-leafed version of the poison ivy, though it is usually not worrisome with regards to rashes like poison ivy except for overly sensitive people that may come into contact with its sap. The vine produces berries, however, which are extremely toxic and can even be fatal if ingested.
