Sometimes, toxicity differs between species and there is a potential for humans to react to latex - but to call it poison is really confusing.

What species did you discover, Maikan??

The plant which was nearly wiped out here is called large flowered Butter-wort that I found it hidden away in a clump of St Patrick's Cabbage again another plant local to this area and not related to cabbages, its also a very pretty flower.

As a plant-crazed amateur-botanist I always like learning species from other areas and what their medicine may be. And finding rareties - whoo hoo, makes my day.

Makes mine as well, another plant that the area / town land where I live is named after is Heath Milk wort. The name translates to Blue Summit because the whole mountain I live on turns the most amazing shade of blue to purple come June / July. Though the name of the mountain itself translates to Hill of the Ravens. Due to the Ravens that live here.
