Notes:

I was removing a “parasitic” vine from some rose bushes in the backyard and noticed it was around this bush as well. Two days later I have a rash very similar to poison ivy pretty much right where I leaned in to the bush (but it’s not on my hands, forearms, etc.). Any ideas what this plant is, if it causes allergic reactions, or maybe if it could have been the vine? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the quick response Bobby – the rash is still around, but seems to be dissipating at a rate faster that what I normally would experience with poison ivy or those related rascals. Maybe that means I’m sensitive, but not as bad. Anyhow, thanks again – I’ll not be touching this one again.

    Looks like oakleaf hydrangea. It has been reported to be a mild allergen.
