What could be the harm from picking wildflowers and making an arrangement from them? Turns out, you could be giving yourself third-degree burns. Many wildflowers are toxic if ingested, but they can also be harmful just by touching them. The giant hogweed flower, for example, looks like Queen Anne's lace, but has a sap that can cause burns and even blindness if it gets into your eyes. And there are many more wildflowers that can cause serious damage. Stick to flowers you know when making an arrangement at home.
