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.
