One of Nature’s Mysteries to Solve

Hey there,

This may not be a difficult mystery for some of you, but it’s an important one.

Mystery #107

What is this plant with the attractive fall foliage?


So we had a few readers who recognize this as Poison Ivy. See the leaves of three? Gorgeous color, isn’t it? But the oil that causes rashes still remains, in the leaves, in the stems, the berries and even the roots. It’s not a good idea to touch Poison Ivy in any form, in any season!

  1. It doesn’t matter what pretty color it is, it’s still poison ivy. Spoken from experience at a young age. Some people don’t think of the fact that even after the leaves are gone, the bare vines will still git ya! Thanks for pointing it out to folks who don’t know. That itchy rash is bad.

Drop us a nut to find!
