I got an email today asking if poison ivy ever has flowers, which is a good question. It can have flowers, but they are so tiny that they are often missed. The photo shows the flowers and the berries that they turn into.

Apologies for the super-grody photo, but this lady wants you to avoid what she has been going through!

If there is any possibility that you have been around poison ivy, DO NOT rub your eyes, or any other sensitive area of the body, or you could get a rash like this one.
