    No, not poison ivy.

    Looks like bittersweet nightshade.

    Not poison ivy. I agree with HLAC, looks like nightshade.

    Here is a website that you can find good info on bittersweet nightshade. http://www.kingcounty.gov/environment/animalsAndPlants.aspx
    You
    will need to work through a couple of screens, just focus on the weeds or noxious weed sites.

    FYI: nightshades are poisonous, not so much tactile like poison ivy, but something will eat the berries or green leaves and get poisoned.

    Poison ivy usually has a sheen to the surface of the leaves, the oil that causes the itch. The three leave usually are very close in size, not one large and 2 small like you show here. Lucky you!
