Topic: Non-Natives, Poisonous Plants
Title: Mulberry sap in the bloodstream from Kansas City
Answered by: Barbara Medford

QUESTION:

What affect does mulberry sap have if put in contact with the blood stream?

ANSWER:

What is it with you and the curare and now mulberry sap? This is still out of our range of expertise and really off-subject for people interested in growing plants native to North America, which is our specialty.
