Here Comes Fall Poison Ivy!

Poison ivy is one of the most enthusiastic participants in the fall foliage extravaganza.

Poison ivy often starts turning early, and can have truly lovely fall color, featuring red, orange, and yellow, sometimes mingling on a single leaf.

However, every so often a fall color enthusiast gets romanced by the gorgeous color, cuts some vines to take home and then their lives take a sharp turn for the worse, usually starting the next day.

If you are not sure whether a plant is poison ivy or not, even when the leaves have fallen off, the one sure way to tell is to use the SeeLeaf detection kit.

But as long as you follow "look but don't touch" you are free to soak in the fall color that this nasty plant has to offer.
