Plants

See the list of plants in Finnish with Latin names >>

Poisonous and non-toxic plants are listed in alphabetical order. Plant species and genera are listed depending on whether all species of a genus are poisonous or only some. The list is not comprehensive. More plants are added to the list as experience is accumulated.

Non-toxic plants include plants which, according to experience, are not toxic to people.

Poisonous plants are divided into three groups:

  • plants causing topical irritation,
  • poisonous plants which only on rare occasion cause symptoms when small amounts have been ingested and
  • plants which may cause severe poisoning even when only small amounts have been ingested.

Explanation of symbols marked after the plant:

[F] = phytophotodermatitis (sensitivity to chemicals causing skin reactions triggered by light)

[K] = non-toxic in moderate amounts or when properly prepared ​
