Odd Poison Ivy

The reason we call this Odd Poison Ivy is that the center leaf has big notches in the sides, which poison ivy almost never does, but there it is.

Poison ivy is among the most variable plants in terms of looks. It can be:

  • A Vine or a Shrub
  • Ground Vine or Climbing Vine
  • Shiny or Dull
  • Notched or Smooth Edged
  • Reddish or Green

Once in a very very rare time it even has 5 leaves, but really rarely.
