Identifying poison ivy isn’t always easy to do!
Poison ivy is a plant you should learn to identify so that you can avoid it. People vary in their sensitivity to poison ivy, but may become more sensitive after repeated exposure to it. Poison ivy flowers in spring and produces dense clusters of white berries that ripen from late summer through fall and persist through the winter. Poison ivy can take the form of an erect shrub or climbing vine or grow in large colonies along the ground.
