Don't Eat This Monkshood Flowers
Monkshood (Aconitum spp.) * The hooded petals of this blue and violet flower resemble the serene pose of a monk's head bent in prayer. * If ingested, the toxins found in this plant's leaves and roots can cause paralysis of the respiratory system, muscle spasms, vomiting, and even death. *Monkshood grows in moist woods and along creek banks in mountainous areas throughout most parts of the country.

I remember the first time I saw my mom eat fennel that was growing next to the trail near our house. I was so shocked that people scavenge while they hike. This is a really valuable collection!
@nokcha Thanks, glad you think so! I'm really into trying to learn more about what I can eat off the trail these days, so I thought this would be very helpfu.
