  1. common dogbane

    Common dogbane, scientifically known as Apocynum cannabinum, is a perennial herbaceous plant native to North America. It typically grows around 1-2 meters tall and produces small, bell-shaped flowers that are greenish-white in color. The plant is known for its milky sap, which contains toxic cardiac glycosides, causing it to be poisonous if ingrown or consumed by dogs, hence the name "dogbane." Despite these toxins, the plant has been used in traditional medicine and the strong fiber of the plant has been used to make thread and cord.
