New Zealand’s best-known poisonous plants are known as tutu (Coriaria species). They have glossy leaves and dangling displays of small flowers and fruit. With the exception of their purple petals, all parts of tutu are poisonous. Two of the eight species are common, and grow along the sides of streams and on road cuttings.
