Description Fine Print
 
Amianthium muscitoxicum is a rare eastern North American native that emerges from a bulb with long, strap-like leaves and 1-2 foot stems topped with spikes of pure white, glistening, star-like flowers that turn green and bronze with age and are followed by bright orange fruit. Fly poison is poisonous in all its parts. The bulbs were crushed and mixed with sugar by American colonists to kill flies and used by the Cherokee people to kill crows. Photo: Wikipedia.
