As one might imagine, this flower unfurls in the evening and stays open until the sun rises. It’s considered one of the most romantic plants you can grow in the garden and is sweetly fragrant when open. However, it’s also quite poisonous. Ahh…love is so fickle. Image: Bright Pink Studio

Datura, also known as Moon Flower [Datura is a genus of nine species of poisonous vespertine flowering plants belonging to the family Solanaceae.

We’ve all seen crocuses in the yard, but did you know that the autumn variety is deadly poisonous due to their colchicine content, and that the symptoms of poisoning resemble those of arsenic? While no antidote is known, the positive is that it’s being used in the early stages of drug development for the treatment of some types of cancer. Image: Shutterstock
It turns out that this plant is poisonous, but not dangerous to humans. Instead, the seeds and other parts of the plant are pounded, pulped, or grated to release the poison and used to stun fish in freshwater streams. The “sea” part comes from the fact that it disperses its fruit by floating in the sea where it can survive for up to two years. Image: Shutterstock

Trichosanthe This is another one that has both beauty and brains in that the root contains a wide range of proteins, enzymes, and amino acids, many of which have an anti-inflammatory effect. It helps promote the production of fluids in the body, and is especially helpful in treating conditions manifested by inflammations. Plus, it just looks really cool.

Despite the fact that this flower attracts flies (for pollination) by emitting a smell like carrion, some inhabitants in southern Ethiopia eat it with prepared balls of sorghum, and note that it tastes relatively good and has no unpleasant side-effects when boiled and consumed.

No, that’s not a bat, but it looks pretty cool, doesn't it? The Tacca Chantrieri is actually a species of flower in the yam family that has black flowers and long “whiskers” that can grow up to 28 inches. Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-Bat Plant! Image: Shutterstock
Do not be fooled by the pretty colors! This flower — also known as “Devil’s Helmet” or “Queen of All Poisons” — is, as you might guess, rather dangerous, which makes you wonder why they don’t just name it that in the first place. At any rate, don’t eat it because “with large doses death is almost instantaneous.” Image: Shutterstock

Hey there, Twinkle Toes! The Ballerina Orchid is a small, inconspicuous, terrestrial spider orchid found mainly in Australia.

Not a very appealing name for the largest flower in the world — often measuring up to 10 feet tall — but appropriate, given that it stinks. Literally. Along with being rather unattractive, the odor had been compared to rotten flesh, so leave this one out of your flower bouquets. Image: Shutterstock

This beauty is not only nice to look at, but can also be used medicinally as an anti-inflammatory, expectorant, cough suppressant, and is often used to treat fevers, malaria, bed wetting, and even to promote early labor. The unripe berries, however, are poisonous. Image: Shutterstock

The name sounds innocent enough, but all parts of this pretty little plant are poisonous when ingested. What can happen? Just paralysis, confusion, diarrhea, migraine headaches, visual and auditory hallucinations, and death. Oh, and those hallucinations? They have been described as “a powerful trance with violent and unpleasant effects, sickening aftereffects and, at times, temporary insanity." In other words, not so angelic. Image: Flickr

If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, then it must be a rare orchid found only in the Australian wilderness. This tiny flower — usually only about 50 centimeters tall — has failed to thrive anywhere else because of a symbiotic relationship between the roots and a vegetative part of a fungus which can only be found in the wild country of eastern and southern Australia.

Caleana Major, the Flying Duck Orchid, is a small orchid found in Eastern and Southern Australia. This terrestrial plant features a remarkable flower, resembling a duck in flight. The flower is an attractant to insects, such as male sawflies which pollinate the flower in a process known as pseudocopulation. In 1986 this orchid was featured on an Australian postage stamp.

Did you know that 1" of rain puts about 600 gallons of water atop a 1,000 square foot house? That's a lot of rainwater to capture and a cistern can do the trick. Captured directly from a downspout, or rain chain, a cistern will have your garden water ready. These cisterns collect rainwater from a nearby roof and when the tanks are full water is dispersed through a gravity-fed drip system that irrigates crops. Consider this book about water storage: http://amzn.to/QHpXPY

19th-century Wardian Case (terrarium greenhouse) SO COOL
19th century Wardian CaseThe Wardian case was an early type of sealed protective container for plants, which found great use in the 19th Century in protecting foreign plants imported to Europe from overseas, the great majority of which had previously died from exposure during long sea journeys, frustrating the many scientific and amateur botanists of the time. The Wardian case was the direct forerunner of the modern terrarium (and the inspiration for the glass aquarium).
The classic terrarium is housed in a 'Wardian" case, named for the 19th century amateur biologist Dr. Nathaniel Ward.Florist Wilmington NC | Bloomers Flowers Blog - Wilmington NC | BloomersBlog: Terrariums are Back!
19th century Wardian Case The Wardian case was the direct forerunner of the modern terrarium (and the inspiration for the glass aquarium), and was invented by Dr. Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward (1791–1868), of London, in about 1829 after an accidental discovery inspired him. This structure is in homage to the Crystal Palace Exhibition in London in 1851
19th-century Wardian Case | Content in a Cottage - The Wardian case, or fern case, was the forerunner of the modern terrarium and a popular method of maintaining a small indoor garden. First introduced in London by Dr. Ward in the early 19th century, the Wardian case became a highlight of Victorian drawing rooms.
