Green? Might be a vine (5)


I believe the answer is:


'green?' is the definition.
(green can mean naive or innocent)

'might be a vine' is the wordplay.
'might be' indicates anagramming the letters (I've seen this in other clues).
'avine' is an anagram of 'NAIVE'.

(Other definitions for naive that I've seen before include "Unenlightened" , "Rather too innocent and trusting" , "Showing lack of experience or sophistication" , "Simple, innocent or unsophisticated" , "Lacking guile" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail.
