My son is highly allergic to poison ivy & has developed the same symptoms by coming in contact with this plant as he does when he is exposed to poison ivy. Can you tell us if this is indeed poison ivy?

    It does not have the glossy leaves as the Nandina does. It grows wild in the woods in NE Texas. The blooms are similar to the Nandina but I’m thinking it produces blooms in late summer and the birds do not even seem to feed on them. The manager of the apartment complex says it is not poison ivy yet it does have the leaves of 3 (leave them be) and he did break out with poison ivy blistering after he pulled a branch off the plant. it is really a mystery because it spreads like wildfire & has a huge root system that will take over an area quickly.

    Could you show us the whole plant & its side view? To my eyes these could be the leaves of Heavenly bamboo Nandina domestica (?) But with out seeing more details, I could only speculate for now. Check out the included link below for more information, click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!
