About this book

Pretty but Poisonous is written for home and landscape gardeners, parents, child carers, grounds maintenance staff, bush walkers and all those who enjoy the great outdoors, to help identify plants that may cause poisoning, allergies or skin reactions in people. The book uses easy-to-understand language and colour photographs to aid plant identification. It includes hints on how to avoid plant poisoning and what to do if poisoning does occur. A simple colour coding system has been used to establish how toxic each plant is - very poisonous, poisonous, allergenic or irritant. The book also details which parts of the plant are poisonous and the toxins that are likely to be encountered, as well as symptoms of poisoning. All these plants are found in Australia.
