Poison ivy usually grows as a vine, but can also take on a bushy form. It can grow anywhere and its appearance changes throughout the year, and it looks like dozens of innocent plants, such as Virginia Creeper and blackberry. The middle leaf typically has a longer leaf stalk than the two side leaves. Poison ivy can also make very large, hairy vines that run up the sides of trees. These don’t always have leaves, but are filled with urushiol. When in doubt, approach any big vines with great caution.
