Poison ivy is a toxic plant that is commonly, but not exclusively, found through most continental areas of the United States.

It tends to grow in totally wild areas but is also found in places which have seen human disturbance, such as road sides, sidewalks and trails or anywhere where there is a cleared or well developed plot of land.

One of its characteristics is its ability to grow and flourish where other plants cannot. This makes it relatively easy to spot and identify.
