Hi. The Aconitum, be careful of the sap/juices from this plant. If got into open wound will make you very ill. The sap on skin may burn some people and don't smell the flowers as it may cause nose bleeds in some people.

Don't mean to scare you, just be careful.

Did I miss seeing dahlias somewhere? They last forever in my arrangements.

Same with the Euphorbias. All have a sap that is toxic, some more than others. Easily a skin and eye irritant if you handle it and then rub your eyes before you have washed your hands. This has sent people to the ER. But I love the Euphorbias and grow a lot of them, indoors and out. :)
