Poison Ivy Gallery
Please look through the pictures below for plant identification. There are many variations and most likely you have a variation on your property.
In the first four photos in the gallery, note the extreme variation in the leaves of the plants. All are poison ivy. The top and bottom left are in the same patch as are the top and bottom images on the right. In fact, these dramatically different looking leaves are on the same plant! It is this irregularity of the leaves, the persistent inconsistency of leaves on the same vine or plant that makes poison ivy unmistakable. Most 3 leave plants have symmetrical leaves, the most common exception to this is the young Box Elder tree.
