I transplanted this vine I found in my woods to cover some utility fencing for privacy. My friend came over the other day and said it was posion ivy! After looking it up - it does look like all the pics I've found. Any input?

Ooo, looks like it might be, doesn't it?! But do you have a closeup of it, or can you post onto a site such as Picassa and provide the link - that way, we can zoom in to look at it closer.

But if it is, guess you aren't sensitive to it after having transplanted it without getting a rash!

Hi Marj. I kind of cheated - after I posted here I saw the "name that plant" section. I added another section that had just finished blooming and had a couple id's as clematis. I didn't realize there was a wild clematis except the low one I've seen. So I guess I'll look into that. And yes - I was shocked if its posion ivy that didn't bother me...can't even pick zucchini without getting a rash, lol

Clematis ligusticifolia I believe
