Poisonous Herbs + Plants

I saw a post with a list of poisonous herbs already, but I thought I’d add to it since there are several more dangerous plants that are commonly used. First post can be found here. Check it out for additional herbs.

Arnica: Should not be taken internally as it is potentially toxic, but it provides one of the best remedies for external local healing of bruises and strains.

Bleeding Heart: May be poisonous in large amounts. Has proved fatal to cattle.

Buttercup: Irritant juices may severely injure the digestive system.

Daphne: Fatal. A few berries can kill a child.

Elderberry: Children have been poisoned by using pieces of the pithy stems for blowguns. Nausea and digestive upset.

Elephant Ear: All parts. Intense burning and irritation of the mouth and tongue. Death can occur if base of the tongue swells enough to block the air passage of the throat.

Golden Chain: Severe poisoning. Excitement, staggering, convulsions and coma. May be fatal.

Hyacinth: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. May be fatal.

Iris: Severe digestive upset.

Jasmine: Berries. Fatal. Digestive disturbance and nervous symptoms.

Larkspur: Digestive upset, nervous excitement, depression. May be fatal.

Lily of the Valley: Irregular heartbeat and pulse, usually accompanied by digestive upset and mental confusion.

Monkshood: Digestive upset and nervous excitement.

Moonseed: Berries. Blue, purple color, resembling wild grapes. May be fatal.

Nightshade: Fatal. Intense digestive disturbance and nervous symptoms.

Oak: Acorns. Affects kidneys gradually. Symptoms appear only after several days or weeks. Takes a large amount for poisoning.

Oleander: Leaves, branches. Extremely poisonous. Affects the heart, produces severe digestive upset and has caused death.

Rhubarb: Fatal. Large amounts of raw or cooked leaves can cause convulsions, coma, followed rapidly by death.

Rosary Pea: Fatal. A single Rosary Pea seed has caused death. One or two Castor Bean seeds are near the lethal dose for adults.

Wisteria: Mild to severe digestive upset. Many children are poisoned by this plant.

Writing for YE OLDE AUDIENCE (yes they're there; see them? wave hello!)

While I’m here in the zone of writerly thoughts I think it’s worth pointing out that when you write a thing–any “thing”–you are writing for an audience. You need to keep that particular audience in mind the entire time you’re writing, and later, when you’re editing, don’t forget about them. They’re always there. Watching. Creeping. Judging.
