ABSTRACT
This article offers an overview about poisonous plants. People have always lived near plants that can cause a skin rash, an illness or death. Through the years, many of these plants have been brought into home gardens and public parks from their natural surroundings. Some poisonous plants are used in making medicines. An example is the common purple foxglove grown in gardens and in shady woods. The digitalis taken from its leaves and seeds strengthens the heartbeat of an ill person, but unless a doctor prescribes the proper amount, the results of incorrect dosage can be fatal.
