The Q&A Archives: Picture Of Poison Ivy

Question: Someone else asked the question "where can I find a picture of poison ivy" and the answer referred to a web site that no longer has the picture. Can you please tell me what it looks like and, if possible, where I can find a picture? Three different vines have sprouted in my yard and I'm hoping some are wonderful flowering vines.

Answer: Here is a new set of links. Poison ivy has three leaflets, new ones are shiny and maybe reddish, and the vine is hairy with age. The vine and the leaves can irritate, so do not handle any part of the plant. (big old hairy vine)
