Leaf of Poison Ivy


Alternate*, compound*, glossy leaves with three highly variable leaflets*. Leaflets can either be smooth or slightly hairy; can have smooth edges or be somewhat toothed* and irregular. The end leaflet is usually larger than the two surrounding leaflets, has a sharper point, and usually extends further out on the stem than the other two leaflets.
