How to identify poisonous plants Iris,azalea,hydrangea

Are you aware that the iris, azalea and hydrangea are considered to be toxic plants?

Most people know about the very poisonous plants like mistletoe, deadly nightshade and poison ivy, but as a safety precaution, you should also know about other toxic plants like iris, azalea and hydrangea which might not necessarily kill, but could still poison someone and make them feel very ill.

Paradoxically, many potentially harmful plants, including Irises, are also considered to have healing properties.

  1. Interesting to know that poisonous plants have healing properties. Very paradoxical indeed.
    You could improve your interesting blog by adding a few more pictures and plants that look similar, differentiating the toxic from the non toxic ones.
    Great work, keep it up Diana!
