Need help identifying this weed

Posted by ggal24 vt (My Page) on

I recently broke out with poison ivy, but haven't been able to find where it's growing on my property. This 3-leafed weed is growing in a wildflower bed near the edge of my woods (in southern VT), While it doesn't have all the characteristics of poison ivy, I haven't been able to positively identify it. Any ideas? Thanks, Joni

RE: Need help identifying this weed

Many other plants can a rash. Latex sap is often the culprit, found in Euphorbias, Sonchus, Lacutuca, Asclepias, Ipomoea (which includes morning glory, sweet potato, moon flower.) Many house plants are also capable of giving one a rash akin to PI. Have you been propagating house plants?

Your pic doesn't look like PI to me, not sure what it is.
