Description

Update: I feel confident enough with the suggestion of Sanicula (genus) that I'm willing to make a preliminary ID of Sanicula canadensis. The habitat matches well (mesic deciduous woodland). I'll look for flowers in late Spring and early summer for confirmation.

--------
I am stumped. Our edible plants tour guide called this "wild chervil," but that's a common name for Anthriscus sylvestris, a carrot relative that's toxic (and LOOKS like a carrot relative). This one looks like Virginia Creeper and/or American Ginseng. I obscured the location just in case it IS American Ginseng, but I'd be surprised if it is.

We did eat leaves and they tasted like parsley.

Note: it looks like Virginia Creeper but doesn't have a trailing habit or spread much laterally. There are 2-3 levels of growth upward.

Sorry the pic is rather grainy. I've recently upgraded from this point-and-shoot to a really nice smartphone, so hopefully if I see this plant again I can get better photos.
