Poisonous Plants in the Ornamental Garden

Many of our favorite ornamental garden plants are poisonous and some have fascinating histories!
 

You may be surprised to learn that there are poisonous plants growing in your garden. Join us online for our next gardening workshop, and learn about a common shrub whose pollen produces toxic honey, and another called the “Tree of Death!” We’ll also discover a popular perennial used for chemical warfare by the ancient Greeks, the native plant that killed Abraham Lincoln’s mother, a plant called the “Queen of Poisons,” and a plant whose seeds were used for a Cold War assassination.The speaker will provide some common sense precautions to safely grow these plants in your garden.
