Watch out for toxic Spurge Laurel

That evergreen, rhododendron-like shrub that is popping up in gardens and woodlands throughout the county is spurge laurel (Daphne laureola). Closely related to the much-admired ornamental daphnes, all parts of this plant are toxic to dogs, cats and humans and contact with the sap may cause mild to severe dermatitis. Beyond the issue of toxicity, spurge laurel is highly invasive.
