Poisonous Plants

Southeastern Arizona Poisonous Plants

Listed here are some of the wild-growing southeastern Arizona plants with poisonous or toxic parts (fruit, seeds, leaves, etc.). If a plant or plant part is not listed here, it doesn't necessarily mean that it is non-poisonous or safe to eat, it may just mean that I don't know if it is poisonous or not. Also, these plants may contain additional poisons not listed on their description pages.

Some of these poisonous plants are mainly a danger to grazing animals, while others are a danger to humans, especially those plants with either edible-looking berries (Solanum species) or drug-like properties (Datura species and Opium Poppy).
