Just a quick little public service announcement for you human readers! This is Poison Ivy. Don’t touch it!
It’s a shiny three-leaflet leaf,
reddish when they are first emerging,
growing on hairy vines.
Straight up from the ground, across the ground, up anything vertical.
It’s the oil on all of the plant parts–even the roots–that causes blistering on skin.
Hope this helps someone stay itch-free this summer!
