Re: Five Flowers to Dine On

Columbines are POISONOUS!!! Please do not eat ANY flowers until you have verified from a legitimate source that no part of it is poisonous. You can easily find online that the roots and leaves of columbines are cardiotoxic (affect the heart). Any time you eat the flowers, there is a tiny chance that seeds may have ended up on them. In addition, it is irresponsible to do this in front of children. Kids may not realize the utmost importance of avoiding seeds and could die as a result.

Again, COLUMBINES ARE POISONOUS, and you should NOT be eating them! Please take the advice of a nurse...
