Poison Ivy

   
Poison Ivy
Rhus radicans
   

Everyone who spends any time in woods or fields should be sure that they are able to spot Poison Ivy, but Poison Ivy can actually be rather difficult to recognize. The plant is vastly different in the Spring and the Fall; in the Spring it can be rather pretty, and has red stems, but by Fall the leaves have become coarse and dull, and its mature stems will be covered with hairy rootlets. This vine has small white clusters of flowers in May, June, and July, and clustered, white, berry-like fruit in August. One thing most people don't know about Poison Ivy is that it is a member of the Cashew family.
