Common But Deadly Plants

Gardening is a rewarding and enjoyable hobby, but if you're not careful, it can also be a deadly activity. Here are ten common plants that can be extremely poisonous when handled or consumed. Nature-lovers, beware!
1. Oleander (Nerium Oleander)

It may look like an attractive flowering shrub, but don't be fooled! Oleander is one of the most poisonous of all commonly grown garden plants, and though it's especially toxic to children it is often planted in school yards. It is a hearty bush and grows on many different continents, and with beautiful, fragrant blossoms, it is tempting to include it in any garden... just don't even think about touching it or tasting the leaves or stems.
