Poisonous Plants – Books

Q: Is there a publication that lists all of the poisonous plants in Georgia? My neighbor has poison ivy that I haven’t gotten into yet but we want to make sure we recognize everything.

A: I found several books online at Amazon but they cover the whole US, not the Southeast.

I think the best resource is this site. It has color pictures of common poisonous plants in Georgia.

Your local University of Georgia Extension office (1-800-ASKUGA-1) has a free publication called “Poisonous Plants in the Landscape”.
