Anemone

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Anemone
  • Latin Name: Anemone spp.
  • Family Name: Ranunculaceae

As members of the Buttercup family, these plants contain Protoanemonin, which is derived from the chemical ranunculin, and if dried it converts into anemonic acid.  If ingested could cause blistering of the mouth, stomach irritation and bloody diarrhoea so best to avoid.
