I’m trying to remember what I planted in this pot. It’s not comfrey. I remember that you aren’t supposed to touch the leaves without washing your hands if you are sensitive (unless this isn’t that plant?) Can anyone help identify this? Thank you in advance!

    Hi Patty! This is Celandine.  Chelidonium majus, commonly known as greater celandine, nipplewort, swallowwort or tetterwort,  a herbaceous perennial plant, one of two species in the genus Chelidonium.  If you cut a stem it is dripping with yellow latex.

    The whole plant is toxic in moderate doses as it contains a range of isoquinoline alkaloids; but it is used in alternative medicine, though it requires the correct dose.

    The plant is poisonous to chickens.
