Wild Poison Ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) is common along many trails in Florida. This example was discovered in the Oslo Road Conservation Area (ORCA) in Vero Beach Florida USA.

    Nice capture Larry. I believe that is Wild Coffee, Psychotria nervosa, a Florida native plant. It’s one of my favorite natives and I have one in my backyard. The birds love the berries :)

  • Hi Donna My Florid field guide does not list Wild Coffee, the closest thing I could find was poison Ivy. I’ll have to research it Thanks

    A few months ago, I discovered an enormous set of old and very well-established p.i. vines on one of the trees in the back yard of my house in Florida… scared me to death.

    Beautiful photograph, however…

    I’m itching just knowing what it is.
    I am glad you told me I might have plucked the flower to bring it home otherwise.
    Great shot!

    Unfortunately, I can’t identify the plant, but it’s definitely not poison ivy. I’ll get you a very definite photo of that later. If it’s in the poison family, I would assume it to be poison oak which is the one I am least familiar with. Are those white berries or flowers?
