Beware Fall Color!

poison ivy in fall

This is our yearly warning to avoid the great colors that poison ivy likes to show in fall.

If you are out gathering the most colorful fall leaves for a table decoration you might accidentally gather the MOST impresssive leaves, which are often poison ivy!

Poison ivy turns color a bit sooner than most other plants in the fall and often has terrific fall color.

But look out for the "leaves of three".

If you even THINK the plant might be poison ivy then stick with a photo; don't gather the leaves.
