What about foxglove??? That is a pretty common plant--and is pretty appearance-wise too.

There are lots of plants that are poisonous, but you have to work pretty hard to die from them--such as the examples cited by your source. Do some more research, it's pretty interesting. :)

***EDIT: I found this link that I thought you might enjoy also.***

I haven't found any of those yet, Prinny.

An ex of mine managed to under-water a cactus I bought her. :p

I got one that you cant kill right here in my office. It's scientific name is plasticus rubberish :D Never need to water it and it never needs to be trimmed because it doesnt grow. Think it might be posionous if you manage to cut off the plastic leaves and try to eat them :p

LOL! We "inherited" two of those ugly things when we moved into the first house in fogeyville. One was this tall plant that had slender leaves and a weird "diamondback" pattern down the center of those leaves--UCK!! The other one was one of those plants that you put the cuttings in water and they grow like magic--they have big heart shaped leaves and they trail down the sides of whatever you have them planted in. UCK!

We put that tall one in the garage when it was freezing outside--it still took about 6 months with no water to finally die off completely. We tried to give it away, but no one would take it.

Wandering Jew?? Hmmmmm....well, I've a cousin to it of sorts now that I like--it's got velvety leaves instead of the glossy ones, and the design on the leaves is prettier....but it's starting to die off. I'm not sure what happened, but it's turning yellow. :( It's sad, I really like it...:(
