Poisonous Plants

I found a list that I have with a table of poisonous plants.  Some of these plants I was not aware were poisonous!  I received this list from Pierce County Noxious Weed Control Board and the Pierce County Cooperative Extension Service.  It is by no means a complete list, but it includes plants that are common around this area of Pierce County.  Many of these plants you may find in your area or in your home.  It is certainly worth taking the time to glance at this and be prepared.

Plants Causing Dermatitis (skin disorders)
Calla Lilly, Cow Parsnip, Daffodil, Devils Club, Dog Fennel, Giant Hogweed, Iris, Leafy Spurge, Moleplant (Caper spurge), Motherwort, Petty Spurge, Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, Primrose (obconia - green house introduced from Eurasia) Smartweed, Stinging Nettle, St. Johnswort, Wilde Carrot, Wild Ginger, Yellow Jessamine
