Jewel Weed vs. Poison Ivy

I recently received an email with a picture from Hocking resident John Yorde.  He has a plant on his land that he wanted identified as he had heard it might be a treatment for poison ivy.  The plant in question is Jewel Weed,  and it does have a reputation as an alternative cure for itchy rashes.



Here is some more fun information about Jewel Weed from the National Park Service  Thanks for the question and pic John.
