The Dual History of Poisonous Flowers - The New York Times
Haidee Findlay-Levin. Background image: Roelandt Jacobsz Savery (1576-1639), “Forest With Deer,” circa 1608-10, oil on panel, Saint Louis Art Museum, Missouri, U.S.A./Museum Purchase/Bridgeman ImagesThe Dual History of Poisonous FlowersFrom ancient times through today, the same blooms used to harm have also proved healing.By Aug. 27, 2020THE FLOWERS POINT straight down, a chandelier’s worth, turned ostentatiously away from the sun. They are Brugmansia by genus and angel’s trumpet in parlance, with elongated buds that open into blaring mouths. In South America, the tree that bears them is called el borrachero, or “the drunk-maker,” in part because of the blooms’ dizzying night perfume of fermented lemons, said to induce crazed dreams. And more: Parts of the plant, when crushed, yield scopolamine, a.k.a. burundanga, a.k.a. devil’s breath — a psychoactive alkaloid deployed by criminals, via a spiked drink or a puff in the face, to disable free will. It is said to transform victims into dutiful servants who revive hours later, bereft of all their belongings and any memory of what they’ve done.The more distanced we become from the natural world, the more we forget that plants, too, have tooth and claw. What we so often treat as merely decorative has agency apart from our desires. “A plant that is so tender, immobile, typically considered just fodder for livestock — it has its own power, its own goals,” the New York City floral designer Emily Thompson says. The ancients knew this, among them the second-century-B.C. ruler Attalus III of Pergamum (now the modern-day Turkish city of Bergama), who in his palace garden grew the likes of henbane, or stink...

Beargrass and yucca: two signature Montana plants - Valleyjournal
In the late spring of 1806 during their expedition west, Lewis and Clark discovered and named the plant. However, while traveling along the Missouri River above present-day Yankton, South Dakota, in Sept. 2, 1804, Clark’s journal entry mentions seeing “bear grass” (actually yucca) on the dry river plains. In those days, yucca was called beargrass, and since there is a great deal of similarity between the two, it may explain why Lewis and Clark applied the name “beargrass” to the mountain plant when they encountered it in the Rockies. Interestingly, it isn’t a grass and bears won’t touch it, but mountain goats will eat the leaves, and deer, elk and bighorn sheep dine on the blossoms.
On the return trip from the Pacific, as the Corps of Discovery neared what would become Montana, they gathered samples of beargrass plants. On June 26, 1806, Lewis wrote: “There is a great abundance of a species of beargrass which grows on every part of these mountains. Its growth is luxuriant and continues green all winter but the horses will not eat it.”
During their long winter at Fort Clatsop in Oregon, Lewis noticed the Clatsop Indians making baskets. He recorded: “Their baskets are formed of cedar bark and beargrass so closely interwoven with the fingers that they are watertight without the aid of gum or rosin; some of these are highly ornamented with strans of bear grass, which they dye of several colors and interweave in a great variety of figures; this serves them the double purpose of holding their water or wearing on their heads.”
It is for the construction of these baskets that the beargrass becomes an article of traffic among the natives. This grass grows only on their high mountains near the snowy region: “The young blades, which are white from not being exposed to the sun or air, are those most commonly employed, particularly in their neatest work.”
Of the beargrass samples collected on the expedition, two still exist: one at the Lewis and Clark Herbarium and the other at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew near London.
Also called “soapweed,” “Spanish bayonet” and, as we have just learned, “beargrass,” yucca blooms from a low cluster of long, pointed, spikey leaves. During the growing season, a tall stalk will emerge and produce large n...
