We have a blueberry bush that has another plant growing with it. My husband dug it up and carefully untangled the roots.

The blueberry bush is fine and fruiting well.

Can you tell me what this other plant is please?

    The easy way it is to check nearby tree for similar leaves. I think it is a Betula (birch), or similar (Populus, etc.). Adding the region where you leave, could help reducing the choices. Commented Jul 16, 2018 at 9:53
  • I think you are right, Giacomo. Sure wish we could have these OPs go through a simple questionnaire as they create their questions. It is almost impossible to answer a question without asking a bunch more questions of the OP to get the information we need to answer their question...

I could be paranoid but, it looks like wild grapevine to me.If it is, get rid of it quick. You mentioned untangling the roots, that's how it spreads also.Not to mention the tendrils it sends out and wraps around everything and strangling everything it latches on to.Iv'e been battling it for 4 yrs. now. Have to kill the roots. good luck.
