Does Poison Oak Bloom?

If it does can someone post a picture please. There is something in the over grown area that has very pretty white flowers but it appears to be something very invasive.

Appreciate the help.

thanks LMT it's not the poison oak that is blooming but what ever it is, is buried in amongst the poison oak so there isn't any way to get it out. Or is there? Anyone ever fought poison oak and won? It sure is a pretty flower what ever it is. Of course with my luck it will be a even nastier weed lol.

To combat various woody nasties I use a spray I get at the hardware that kills them specificly and leaves non-woodies alone. It's sprayed on the leaves, absorbed and kills the plant at the root. That would kill the poison oak back and you could go in with rubber gloves and get the treasure. I'd be sure to wipe down with bleach, wash the clothes and take a shower afterward but I'm very prone.

I didn't know there were weed killers specifically for woody plants. That's interesting. I have to be really careful the poison oak is all over the bottom of the poplar tree to. And it doesn't sound like the weed killer would be very nice to it either or the honey suckle bush. Well if I want them I have to try right. I don't win if I don't play. Good thing the nicotine patches cost less than the cigarettes lol. That means I have a few dollars left over to give this a try. Do you have a brand name you would be willing to share with me?

I think I bought ortho but i'd imagine roundup's product would work as well.
