Don't Eat Atamasco Lilies
Atamasco Lily (Zephyranthes atamasca) *This picturesque wildflower, which grows in the low woods, wet meadows, and swamps of the Southeast may not look threatening. * The alkaloid lycorine found in the petals, leaves, and bulb, is highly toxic—and potentially fatal. * People who ingest any part of the plant can also experience nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. *Atamasco lilies are identified by their white, star-shaped flowers and thin, grass-like leaves.
