Poison Ivy - Aids to identification
(a) clusters of three leaflets
(b) alternate leaf arrangement
(c) lack of thorns, and
(d) each group of three leaflets grows on its own stem, which connects to the main vine.
The appearance of poison ivy can vary greatly between environments, and even within a single area. Identification by experienced people is often made difficult by leaf damage, the plant's leafless condition during winter, and unusual growth forms due to environmental or genetic factors.
Various mnemonic rhymes describe the characteristic appearance of poison ivy:
"Leaflets three; let it be" is the best known and most useful cautionary rhyme. It applies to poison oak, as well as to poison ivy, but other, non-harmful plants have similar leaves
"Hairy vine, no friend of mine. "
"Berries white, run in fright" and "Berries white, danger in sight. "
