I knew hemlock was one of the deadly ones but had no prior knowledge of how many kinds there were.
Each with different...killing potential. Some peaceful (If you call a creeping death peaceful) some quite violent!

The highlighted leads hold quite a bit of interesting history involving that plant.

Quote:

The closing pages of Plato's Phaedo provide a stunning picture of the effects of poison upon the body of Socrates. Plato describes a slowly ascending paralysis, beginning in Socrates' feet and creeping steadily up his legs toward his chest, with Socrates' mind remaining clear until the end. Death arrives calmly and peacefully.
