The Poisonous Flamingo (plant)!

Ingestion usually does not occur because chewing quickly causes painful irritation of the mouth and throat. Anthuriums are a blooming plant that have tiny flowers crowded in a spadix, which is sometimes referred to as a "rat's tail" due to its appearance. Flaming lily is readily available at local plant shops and is a popular house plant because of its long lasting flowers.Flamingo lilies also have a long vase life and can stay fresh in a flower vase for up to 14 days. Although capable of flowering year round most plants grown in the home will enter a dormant period between October and February. During periods of dormancy water sparingly and withhold fertilizer. (www.blankies.com)
