Poison Ivy?

luke.murpheyAugust 8, 2014

I came down with a nasty rash that looked like the effects of Urushiol oil. I think I finally tracked down the culprit: some Poison Ivy in my yard.

Can someone take a look at the attached pictures and tell me if it looks like it?

The vine has clusters of three leaves, the center one has a longer stem than the middle one. The leaves have two small edges. The younger leaves have a red tint.

This is in northern Illinois (Wadsworth); climate zone 5.

@ken_adrian: thanks for the confirmation! I had actually used Google images to find it; just wanted someone to make sure (in case I missed some detail).
