I see a plant that get three leaves on each cluster, with the middle leaf get a longer stem. The leaves are also elliptical in shape. I suspect that it's poison ivy.

However, people told me that it is 'Phaseolus vulgaris Linn' ( I got the English translation through the Chinese name he told me ). Web pages for that plant doesn't say that it's dangerous to touch it. The fruit of that plant can be eaten but it's toxic if it's not being properly cooked.

Just like to ask if you have heard about the plant and is it one kind of poison ivy?
