Southerners love to spend as much time as we can enjoy the natural beauty around us. From stunning national parks to scenic beaches to towering mountain ranges, we've got plenty of sights in our backyard to explore and enjoy. Although we're quick to spot kudzu and point out stately magnolia trees, spotting poison ivy isn't as simple – and, this rash-inducing plant is all around us. If you're planning on taking a hike through the woods, join Steve Bender, a.k.a. the Grumpy Gardener, as he goes through the key indicators of poison ivy and poison oak, and identifies which plants could be harmful to your health. Here, Grumpy talks about the number of leaves you should look for when avoiding poison ivy, and what plants are often mislabeled as poisonous when they're really harmless. So, as you're packing your water bottle and hiking boots for your next big adventure, be sure to pack the Grumpy Gardener's advice, as well!
