    Poison plants

    So we installed a pool and fancy walkway in our backyard recently. My wife and I decided to go to the nursery and get some nice plants to go around the walkway. We walked through grabbing differnt plants that caught our eye. I spotted this one plant that had nice color leaves with nice shape to them. I read the little pamphlet on it. It said these plants have beautiful leaves all year round and when the bloom, it has long trumpet shaped flowers of yellow and white, that are amoung the most fragrant of all flowers. Sounded great and we bought a big pot of them.

    When I got home, I was looking where I would plant them. I have some spots that are parcel shade and others that are full sun. I thought I should look up the plant on google to see what it likes. Come to find out it's poisonous. Every part of it is poisonous. (Leaves, stems, roots and flowers. I'm not talking poison ivy poisonous. I'm talking Dr Moriarity puts this shit in Sherlock Homes tea poisonous. It brings on vomiting, hallucinations and yes violent death. Not just people, dogs are also at risk.

    WTF

    Wouldnt you think they would mention that on the pamphlet? I'm not sure what I want to do with this now. Any plantphiles on here tell me this is over blown.

    It's an actual problem. Fuckhead nurseries are having some super nasty plants imported/cultivated because they "look nice" and then generally avoid mentioning it when they sell them. I'm not sure what you bought, but I have an idea of what it is.

        Yo, WaterH - how's about you tell us the name of the poisonous plant?

        You know, so you're better than the nursery vis-à-vis disclosure?

        Genuinely curious - what deadly vegetation did you buy?

            If you don't eat them you should be fine.

            You worried about your wife cashing in on your life insurance policy with them?

                I wouldn't plant any deadly shit anywhere dogs could get at it.

                Humans on average suck, but dogs are just good people.

                  Pretty much.

                  Not a whole lot of plants out there that will fuck you up just from contact, most of em you need to actually ingest.

                    Smart animals do not eat poisonous plants. Thats how they have managed to remain on this planet as a species.

                    Don't fuck with doggie Darwinism.

                        I had "pennyroyal seeds" misremembered as the frizzle-fry source from shit I read 30+ years ago, but looked it up before posting & came up with morning glory seeds. Never heard of marigolds being a trip ticket.

                            I recall a Star Trek scene where the flower was shooting some projectile. I was a little kid when I watched it, never saw the rerun again-

                              The episode where Spock got a little action.
