Poison Ivy Revealed in Fall

poison ivy in a hedge in the fall

One interesting thing that happens in the fall is that, sometimes, poison ivy gets shown to be hiding in plain site. Here we have a poison ivy vine growing in a hedge. During the spring, summer, and winter, the ivy blends in with the hedge. But for about two weeks in the fall, the ivy turns lovely colors and gives up its secret. This doesn't always work, as poison ivy also grown among plants that also turn fall colors, as I will show in our next post. Still, if you see something like this, take a careful, closer look.
