Meaning of Poison-Ivy
Toxicodendron radicans, commonly known as poison ivy (older synonyms are Rhus toxicodendron and Rhus radicans), is a poisonous North American and Asian flowering plant that is well known for causing an itching, irritating, and sometimes painful rash in most people who touch it, caused by urushiol, a clear liquid compound in the sap of the plant. - See link


Poison-Ivy in Spanish is Toxicodendron radicans
Hiedra venenosa (Toxicodendron radicans o Rhus toxicodendron) es una planta de la familia de las Anacardiaceae. No es realmente una verdadera hiedra o Hedera. Es más bien un tipo de trepadora que es muy famosa por su capacidad de producir un irritante para la piel llamado urushiol que ocasiona dermatitis, inflamación y comezón, En casos extremos el uso de corticoesteroides es aplicado para tratar las molestias. - See link
