I get Poison Ivy real easy but I
have never heard of the vine she
is talking about. We might not grow
it around here.
I imagine there are a few that can
make you itch and get blisters..I
know I got a bad rash from Poison
Sumac and Oak.
Be careful out there!! Suit up! Lin

Well, if you're planning to go digging around it, please remember to "suit up." :-)
Gloves, face mask, long sleeves, long pants . . . bandana or scarf covering your hair + a hat to keep the poisonous debris out of your eyes.
That should do it.
. . . oh . . and remember to take a picture for us.
tee-hee-hee (of the tree, or better yet, of YOU and the poisonous tree/bush.
Hugs,
Margrit

Thanks for posting back! The rash is clearing but I have to get back under that tree and get the rest of the roots. Will wait for hubby to hold up the branches while I get under there!

Margrit, thanks for missing me! I generally only follow new posts and have such a difficult time with those ongoing daily update type posts. I know there is one here but can't follow and you're probably over there so thanks for checking in here!

Hi Dee!!! Missed You!

Wow, that must have been a scary experience.
Glad you're ok. Let us know what you end up finding out about this noxious plant. Sure don't want any sneaking up in our garden. Ha Ha Ha

Wow - never heard of this vince but will watch out for it. How is the rash tonight?

Did you call your physcian? You might need to go in for a shot of prednisone if the rash doesn't clear up.

Panic - pulled a vine out from my pine tree and started to get red dots all over my arms. Washed up and did some research and it seems to be bittersweet nightshade. (I put photo in team photos.)

It is poisonous but can't find any info that indicates a poison ivy like rash. In fact what I've read says to pull it out to manage it.

If you have any experiece with this vine, please lemme know!
