Marsh Marigold

Caltha Palustris

All parts of marigold contain an irritating juice, and poultices of the dried leaves have served to produce skin irritations that were thought to ease rheumatic pains. A drop of the caustic juice squeezed from a leaf or the stem may irritate warts away. The plant is edible after boiling.

Do not eat the raw leaves; they can cause violent gastritis and are toxic to the heart. External application of the leaves can cause blistering.
