As a California native plant, many an animal has sought nourishment or shelter in its "leaves of three," immune to the toxic oil that plagues humans. This versatile plant, a member of the cashew family, may never get over its inherent antagonistic relationship with hikers and gardeners, it may be nevertheless worth a nod of respect.
