Wales woman spots ‘world’s deadliest plant’ in council flowerbed UK | News

,

A woman in North Wales was shocked to discover the world’s deadliest plant in a council flower bed. The bush, when it contains seeds, contains a substance 6000 times more deadly than cyanide.

Known as castor oil plant or Ricinus communis, this flower was previously named the deadliest plant in the world by the Guinness Book of Records.

Conwy Council’s grounds staff planted flowerbeds at Queen’s Gardens Park in Colwyn Bay, including the poison ivy.

Fearing the plants could be dangerous, the woman’s husband contacted North Wales Live.

He told the site: “There was one plant that caught his eye, it looked quite exotic, and so he asked the gardeners what it was.

Conwy Council said it would take the usual precautions with the plants, which have been used in beds for years.

The spokesman said: “We have used castor oil (Ricinus communis) plants in our bedding displays for many years and they are commonly used in bedding displays across the UK.

“As with many ornamental plants, the seeds and seed heads are poisonous if eaten, and we try to remove the plants before the seed heads set.”

According to the Royal Horticultural Society, many common garden flowers are poisonous, reminding gardeners that beautiful, ornamental plants are not meant to be eaten.
