The state flower is the Dogwood, but the state weed ought to be Poison Oak, the vine that grows in hot open areas in the forest.
Poison oak is not an oak, but it can be found near oak trees. It is one of the brushy bushes that is seen especially after an area has been logged of big trees. It often grows around old stumps.
It has waxy shiny green leaves in summer and turns bright red in Autumn.
The oil in the leaves cause an itchy red rash on most persons.
Don't touch it when you see it. Skin that the leqaves touch cna get som oil.
If you get an itchy spot, don't scratch it. The oil gets on your fingers and spreads it wherever your fingers touch.
It takes about 2 weeks to go away, faster if you don't touch it.
Common remedy is to put Calamine lotion on it to soothe the itching feeling.
Some people don't get a reaction, but better be safe than be itchy!
