How do I Identify it?


Poison ivy can grow as a ground cover, a low shrub, or a climbing vine. Forget waxy or shiny leaves, forget red stems, poison ivy may or may not have these characteristics and many other plants may have them. The best way to identify poison ivy is to know that there is an inconsistency in the notches on the 3 leaves. They are usually not mirror images of each other, there are subtle differences that vary from leaf to leaf, cluster to cluster, on the same plant.

Take some time and browse through our Poison Ivy gallery page to see images of poison ivy and some before and after pictures. If you think you have a problem, please contact us to schedule a consultation.

Here are a few identification tips:

  • The plant has three leaves
  • The stem has a larger leaf at the end, and two smaller leaves shooting off the sides.
  • The leaves can be notched or smooth on the edges
  • The leaves have pointed tips.
  • The plant is reddish in the spring, green in summer, and yellow/orange in the fall.
  • The stem never has thorns
  • Never have saw-tooth or scalloped edges)
  • These are just a few identification tips.
