Dang, y'all- have you ever SEEN poison ivy SO BIG?! Time to die, poison ivy! I have to admit, it's kind of majestic.

οΏΌI would like to apologize to all the Virginia creeper, crape myrtle sprouts, wild grapes, and mimosa seedlings that have perished today. οΏΌοΏΌπŸ₯Ί
#PlantsMakePeopleHappy ... but not this one
#NotSoHappyPlants as soon as this chemical kicks in!
#PoisonIvy is not welcome in my #OutsidePlants
I’m feeling itchy just looking at it.
@sarahsalith but it's is absolutely stunning in the fall when it turns red!!
@OKIEgrnthmb it really is pretty, but I'm kinda tired of it. Besides, I want my tree back!
Did you really touch it?? 😢😳😬 My husband is insanely allergic to that shit. He had to go to the hospital last time...
@WickedValkyrie oh, yeh. I was pulling out what I thought was Virginia Creeper the other day. Nope; it was poison ivy. I guess I'm one of the lucky few.
So not fair!! Lol
@sarahsalith I'm originally from Alaska and we don't got nothing like this.. closest thing is devil's club lol...

I didn't even know what it looked like πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Thanks for posting this!!!
I think we have poison ivy toooooo! Tangled up in one of our pine bushes. I was walking around the yard and saw it and the old rhyme 'leaves of 3, leave it be' came into my head so I quickly backed off.
Makes me itchy😬
@ManyLime the best stuff for it is B32. It's a chemical that you can dilute and spray on the unwanted foliage. BUT be careful- whatever it touches, it will kill. The chemical penetrates to the roots.
@melodey that looks kinda cool!
@WickedValkyrie I have it right now on my pinky, it’s been creeping all week and today it’s official. My eyes just popped out seeing her touching it!!!! Oh my am I allergic. I didn’t even touch any!!!!!
@ManyLime yes!!! And hairy vine, no friend of mine. There is soooooo much poison ivy where I live. It’s not even native to the US. I hate it 😑
@melodey lucky πŸ€
@sarahsalith we live in the boonies like you and we have poison Ivy like that here too. Ugh I can look at it and get it. I’ll take a pic later and show you. It’s climbing up everywhere here.
@KikiGoldblatt I never knew it could GET so BIG!
@Jilliebeanstalk sorry my post made you itchy! πŸ˜‰
@sarahsalith πŸ˜‚πŸ€ͺ πŸ₯΄πŸ«³πŸΌ
@sarahsalith I was thinking about this today and….. the ursodiol oil that is in and on poison ivy that will get on your hands might effect other people in your home. I’d wear gloves
@Jilliebeanstalk you better believe i do. I've got a kid that can THINK about poison ivy and he'll get it.

I have a big box of latex gloves; I can toss them instead of wash them.
@sarahsalith oh good. I got worried. I saw a pair of tiny crocs in one of your pictures and the mom in me panicked.
