Fall Poison Ivy with Truck

Fall Poison Ivy with Truck

There are a few things to take note of in this photo:

1. All the green leaves and berries close to the camera ARE poison ivy.

2. All the bright red leaves closer to the road ARE ALSO poison ivy.

It is clear that the plant is very varied in how it turns color. Exposure to sun seems to encourage the fall color, hence better color nearer the road.

In any case, remember that poison ivy can have some of the BEST FALL COLOR and that it can appear as:

1. A ground vine

2. A climbing vine

3. A shrub

All three contain the urushiol oil that most people are allergic to, so picking poison ivy for the fall home decor can ruin your entire fall experience!
