British plants #Infographic

The UK has a range of highly diverse plants, flowers and trees. This is due in part to the import of a wide variety of plants over the years, which is partially due to the British Empire and how far it has extended across the continents.

There are a plethora of incredible plants in the British countryside today, some of which can seriously harm and even kill us, like Wolfsbane. Though some may be used to help, such as the innocent Rose Periwinkle, which is the source of two successful cancer treatment drugs. 

Fortunately, some of these plants have properties that can both damage and benefit humans, but can also be used to produce a medication to treat heart attacks, such as Foxglove, which is fatally toxic.
