Top 10 Poisonous Plants

Nature's provided us with a gorgeous array of plants producing oxygen for our environment and adding beauty to both the indoors and outdoors of our home. However, plants are not always man's best friend. We've complied a list of ten poisonous plants that, if ingested, have frightful effects to beware of. While most people know to watch out for poison ivy plants with three almond-shaped leaflets, it's hard to be aware of all the dangers outdoors in the midst of hundreds of plant species. Try to become familiar with the plants in the gallery above so you can be best prepared for all those leaves you encounter. There are some you know or have heard of so we're here to inform you of their ramifications. The most important thing, however, is that you recognize and avoid them.

View the slideshow above for ten poisonous plants to watch out for.
