Happy (almost) Spring everyone! I have been busy cleaning up my creek embankment and have found an unidentifiable vine with double rosette of leaves. I also developed a horrendous poison-ivy type reaction all over my arms, face and legs. I did not see any poison ivy and wonder if this vine is the culprit? I thought it was honeysuckle but not so sure now. Help?

Even a dead, dried branch of poison ivy can cause a reaction.
That being said, honeysuckly can cause a skin rash in some people. Good luck and hope you get relief soon.

Thanks... I try to watch even for dead vines but missed some somewhere. I've never had bleeding, oozing and blistering this bad.

Are you able to US the vine in my picture as honeysuckle?

Thank You!

I tsure looks like the invasive Japanese honeysuckle - Lonicera japonica but check with other folks to be sure.

I'd say absolutely Lonicera japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle), having pulled miles of this pernicious pest.

You could convince any skeptics by collecting additional lengths of this plant, laying it down in a convenient location like a sidewalk or driveway, and taking clear closeups of all its parts.

Opposite simple leaves, flaky/peeling stems, rooting at nodes - all are indicator features.

Yes, it's the dreaded Japanese Honeysuckle. I've been battling it every year, since spring 1997 growing next to our property. As soon as, I saw your pic, I knew that's what it was.

Here's the link, so you can read the info and see the pics that were submitted.
