Hog Peanut vs. Poison Ivy: All the Differences
19.12.2023 - 13:17
Hog peanut and poison ivy are two common plants across the United States, each with distinctly different characteristics and impacts on the local ecosystem.
Hog peanut (Amphicarpaea bracteata) is a leguminous vine that’s common in a wide range of environments, particularly in woodlands.
You can easily spot this plant by its three leaflets and small flowers with pods containing edible ‘peanuts.’ The vine can either twine or trail along the ground.
Poison ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) is a woody vine that grows in various settings, including woods, fields, edges, and gardens.
This plant is notorious for causing skin irritation – you can identify it with its three leaflets and small green-white fruit clusters.
Remember: It’s always better to stay on the safer side. If you’re not sure about a plant, don’t touch it! With these helpful hints, however, you may boldly travel the world of leafy greens without fear of an irritating encounter.
