Poison ivy vs virginia creeper
I've heard people get these mixed up all the time. I was wondering, does virginia creeper ever look like poison ivy; does it ever have three leaves? Somebody mentioned young virginia creeper having three leaves. I have a sneaking suspicion I actually have both...
I definitely have virginia creeper though, although it was "acquired" from the neighbor, who apparently didn't want it either. It came back though.
I don't mind it actually, but it definitely needs to be controlled. What I don't want is poison ivy. If I think it's poison ivy, how do I safely get rid of it? It's not very big, and is growing in a container of mine, along with my chives, I believe. So much for the chives. Will they be safe to eat next year, if I get rid of the ivy this fall?
Thanks for any advice I receive!
