UN­COV­ER­ING YOUR PLANT IMPOSTER

201 Family - - HEALTH -

• Poi­son ivy will AL­WAYS have leaves of three…never more. • Poi­son ivy AL­WAYS grows left, then right…never side by side. • Poi­son ivy NEVER has thorns, lat­tice, scal­loped or saw-toothed edges.

It can look very pretty in the spring when its leaves are a dis­tract­ing crim­son hue. Poi­son sumac, alive and well in New Jer­sey, is re­lated to poi­son ivy and not to other sumacs. It is more rare than the ivy and thrives in wet­lands.
