The first step to not getting a rash from poison ivy or any type of poisonous plant is to know what it looks like. Poison ivy has three bright green leaves with an often shiny appearance. This plant can grow up trees or buildings. The vines are often reddish in appearance and the roots that allow them to grow up objects can make them look hairy.
Don’t let poison ivy ruin your outdoor fun this year! It is always better to not touch plants if you are unsure if it is poisonous or not!
