Re: Is this poison ivy??


See leaves of three.

Maybe.

Leave it be.

I am not sure, the little rhyme was taught to me by my Grandmother over 50 years ago.

I would take that picture to my local County Horticulturist, they will know for sure.

But right now do not touch it until they say so, you do not want a rash.

3 leaves, but then another pair of leaves further down on the same stem. This is not poison ivy.

This plant has five leaflets comprising the entire leaf. Poison Ivy has three and depending where you live can be bright or dark green. The leaflet edges may be smooth or somewhat serrated. This size of the leaf can be quite variable. It my be a vine, low level ground cover like or small shrub like. Quite the pain. This is not PI although I don't recognize it.

Agree, definitely not Poison Ivy. Poison Ivy has three-leaf sets everywhere, not just on the end. Poison Ivy would have three leaves on the end, and then further down the main branch three more, then three more, etc.

Your sample has three leaves on the end, but then switches to single leaves in opposing pairs, so not Poison Ivy.
