Blossom Dreary

You thought her a delicate flower
But his daughter held terrible power
Her loveliness thrills you,
but a touch from her kills you
and you ought to be taking a shower.

Overly protective Vincent Price treats his daughter with an exotic and toxic plant in "Rappaccini's Daughter", one of three chapters in Twice-Told Tales (Sidney Salkow, 1963).  With Joyce Taylor and Brett Halsey.
