An old saying serves to differentiate between the similar poison ivy and Virginia creeper. For the five-leaved Virginia creeper tends not to be noxious to humans. But with poison ivy, it's well to remember 'leaves of three let it be'. Additionally, poison ivy has a light-colored berryabout which the warning is 'berries of white run in fright'.
