This list is not a complete list of plants that you might have in or around your house that may be poisonous so for now enjoy this little return to Nature Weekends.
Starting this list off is Lily of The Valley or Convallaria majalis. This plant contains one of the most toxic substances that affect the heart.
This one may or may not surprise you but I didn't want to leave off the list. The potato or Solanum tuberosum has the highest concentrations of toxins when the potato is either sprouted or when it's green. In fact if the potato has any green coloration on the skin, you may not want to use it.
Rhubarb is one of my favorite plants in my garden, but like all the other plants on this list, it's poisonous. You do not want to eat the leaves.
Star of Bethlehem or Ornithogalum umbellatum is one plant in which all parts of the plant are poisonous.
Avocado or Persea americana has poisonous leaves, bark, seeds, and even the unripe fruits are toxic.
Aloe ( Aloe sp. ) The latex in the leaves is a strong purgative. One you don't want to mess with. In case you don't know what a purgative is, it's a drug or substance that causes an evacuation of the bowels. So yeah avoid that latex.
This one is interesting because it's one of my favorite spices around Christmas time. Nutmeg or Myristica fragans is poisonous and consuming anything over 0.4 ounces can actually cause death.

Lastly, I want to talk about cherries. This little fact covers all species of cherry. The plant contains cyanide and it's found in the leaves, bark, and the seed kernels. It's best to avoid it. So talk to peeps later.
