Allergy to Virginia creeper

Zone York County. PA | memawtosix added on May 4, 2015 | Answered

Do you know of anyone allergic to Virginia Creeper? I am very allergic to it, just like poison ivy. We have lived here for 22 yrs. and I have managed to get it at least once if not more every year when I weed my flower beds on a hillside.
