British plants #Infographic

The UK has a variety of plants, flowers and trees that are extremely diverse. This is partly due to the importation over the years of a vast range of plants, which is partly due to the British Empire and how far it has spread across the continents.

Today, there are a plethora of amazing plants in the British countryside, some of which, like Wolfsbane, can seriously hurt and even kill us. Although some, such as the innocent Rose Periwinkle, which is the source of two effective cancer treatment drugs, may be used to help. Fortunately, some of these plants, like Foxglove, which is fatally toxic, have properties that can both hurt and benefit humans, but can also be used to make a medicine to treat heart problems.
