Poisonous Plant Dangers Around The Home For Babies, Toddlers, and Children

 

General poisoning notes:

Burningbush (Euonymous atropurpureus) is an ornamental shrub that grows across southern Canada. Several reviews have noted that this plant is poisonous, but documented cases appear to refer to the closely related European spindletree (Euonymous europeus). See additional information under general notes on the European spindletree. Children who ingest the seeds should be attended to. Children and horses have been poisoned by ingesting the European spindletree. Symptoms of poisoning of children and horses are discussed under that plant as well.
