Maryland’s Poison Ivy (Plant Identification)

In the first four photo’s below, note the extreme variation in the leaves of the plants. All are Maryland poison ivy. The top and bottom left are in the same patch as are the top and bottom images on the right. In fact, these dramatically different looking leaves are on the same plant! It is this irregularity of the leaves, the persistent inconsistency of leaves on the same vine or plant that makes poison ivy unmistakable. Most 3 leave plants have symmetrical leaves, the most common exception to this is the young Box Elder tree.
