In the episode that was about a purple duplex, the large vine removed from the building behind the duplex was English ivy, a non poisonous plant , NOT poison ivy! English ivy is evergreen; poison ivy is not!
The leaves of poison ivy have three distinct leaflets that many times have a tiny spot of red on the stem. It turns a beautiful red in the fall before losing its leaves.English ivy is green all year and has only one leaf per stem.
The ladies are good at what they do , but identifying plants is not one of them! Please protect them from possible future poison ivy exposure , as well as future audiences by teaching them the difference in these two plants. It may save them time , effort and useless irritating scratching if they would learn the difference in the two plants!
They also need to know the difference in Virginia Creeper , another non-poisonous plant the grows rampantly in some areas.
It has leaves of five and grows in similar places to poison ivy.
Remember leaves of five , let it thrive. Leaves if three let it be!
User's recommendation: Make sure you know what poison ivy actually looks like so you can avoid it!
