The first 2 are grown separately along my front porch and the 3rd one is all wrapped around a fence in the back yard. I caught something with rashes and blisters on my arms after trimming stuff down around the house.

    To my eyes the leggy/spindly plant and the saplings again the wall in the #1 & #2 photos maybe of the same plant species. And I can’t tell exactly if they are either Ostrya virginia (Eastern hop-hornbeam) or Carpinus caroliniana (American hornbeam). If these are either of these genera check out these included links to help you tell the differences between the two. Again, I’m purely speculating. The last plants with white flowers in #3 photo looks like a type of honey suckle. As for the cause of your rash & blister, Sorry I don’t have any idea. You might want to check for other ‘hidden’ plants that might have escaped notice when you were working among the plants. Best wishes!
