Five leaflets…it’s Virginia Creeper

We haven’t posted a Virginia Creeper-Poison Ivy comparison lately.

This first is Virginia Creeper, with its five leaflets to every leaf–which is not always the case! Virginia Creeper can have fewer and more than five leaflets.

And this second photo is Poison Ivy…a very worn poison ivy, but you should be able to see the three leaflets on each leaf.
