Poison Ivy


This plant is growing everywhere in our yard. My mother in law swears its poison ivy because she's gotten poisin ivy rash from doing yardwork, but no one else has gotten it. Help me learn what this plant is so we can find out the real problem plant.


Sandy and shady. Grows all over the overgrowth and untamed parts of the yard.
