Poisonous Plants Garden

The Muenscher Poisonous Plants Garden is designed to provide veterinarian students and other interested visitors with a living reference collection of "natural toxicants." This specialty garden with nearly 100 plants represented—most from the northeastern United States—showcases plants that are poisonous to livestock and pets; many are toxic to people as well. Featured plants include white snakeroot, larkspurs, poison ivy, jimsonweed, pokeweed, and purple foxglove. A Kentucky coffee tree shades the rear corner of the garden.
