No. Poison Ivy only has 3 leaves. That is Virginia Creeper, often confused with poison ivy, but it has 5 leaves instead of 3. There's an old saying that can help you remember that goes something like "leaves of 3 let them be, leaves of 5 let them thrive."

Poison ivy also has one more rounded edge to it while the other 2 leaves are more pointed. I often have to stop and see which one I am trying to pull out before touching those vines!

Virginia creeper, if it gets sun, will be Beautiful in the fall; red-gold and red-purple! It's not paracitic, won't harm the tree and has dark purple-black seeds in the late fall. Nice!


May God bless the WHOLE world!
