Rosary Pea has a beautiful red. The plant has been used as an ornamental for many years. The seeds can also be used to make jewelry and as weight measures because of their uniformity. BUT remember it is composed of one of the most deadly plant toxins, abrin. A single seed could cause fatality in humans!
