Valentine, beautiful yet deadly (pics) Featured

Today is Vaneltine’s Day (14) and valentines flowers too bloom during this season.

However, despite the beautiful flowers it produces, the valentine plant is a highly toxic plant that causes cancer, according to the World health Organisation (WHO).
Hence, growing valentine plants in your home garden has been ruled a punishable offence.

Yet, many who are unaware of its dander and the law that prohibits growing of this plant, many still grow the valentine plant in their home gardens.

This is a garden in the Anamaduwa area, where a valentine plant is seen growing lusciously and in full bloom.
