Those wicked plants.

If you thought gardening was boring, you need to check out Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln’s Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities, a Who’s Who of some of the nastiest plants to ever grow in soil. There are surprises aplenty on every page as you learn about plants around the world that cause pain, addiction, illness, discomfort and death. Tobacco and marijuana may be a few of the more well-known botanical beasts described within, but there are hundreds of other plants just as deadly, many of them much worse. The graphic descriptions of these plants’ evil deeds is enough to make your skin crawl.

Be warned, though. There’s a good chance that some of these plants could very well be lurking in your backyard or even inside your house. This is some seriously interesting stuff.
