Plants, including both house and garden varieties, are among the top ten causes of poisonings in young children under the age of six. In the Midwest, there are dozens of plants that are capable of causing illness or injury. The potential symptoms of toxicity depend on the specific plant involved. Most exposures occur during spring and summer months and make up nearly ten percent of all the poison exposures in young children reported by poison centers each year. Likewise, the Indiana Poison Center (IPC) receives many calls regarding pet ingestions of yard and garden products that may have harmful chemicals or ingredients.
