What is That Plant in the Ivy?

We are very excited to partner with Dolby Laboratories for a special Nature in your Neighborhood project for Dolby Cares Week. A time when Dolby brings art and science together to inspire the next generation of innovators, and address the most critical needs in their communities. Thank you for contribution to Sutro Stewards!

Like many parents during these pandemic times, we have been taking our toddler for walks around the neighborhood. We identify different animals and insects and their purpose, as well as different kinds of plants. We talk about what color the plants are, whether they are “big” or “tiny”, and whether we can touch or eat them.

On a recent neighborhood walk my son pointed out an interesting looking plant that was twined in the ivy in our neighbor’s yard, looking like a vine of some sort. I remember seeing some flowers and leaves in the ivy before, but never this specific plant.
