Catawba Rhododendron (Rhododendron catawbiense) * It may be hard to believe that this cheery-looking flowering shrub is poisonous. * But the andromedotoxin found throughout the entire plant can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, paralysis of arms and legs, coma, or death. *Catawba rhododendron grows in the southern Appalachian Mountains and blooms with large clusters of pink and lavender flowers.
