Fresh Fly Poison
These flowers are white when they emerge and turn green as they grow older, making for interesting color transitions. As the name suggests, the plant is a deadly beauty. The settlers ground up its bulbs (which are the most poisonous part) and made a paste with honey to attract and kill flies. The Cherokee used it as a topical paste to stop itching and to poison crows. The plant makes alkaloids that act as neurotoxins. It can also affect livestock when ingested during grazing, causing a lack of muscle coordination and hence giving the plant another common name: "Stagger Grass"
