"Day Of The Triffids" can easily remind one of horticultural nature gone amok. So what other plants, trees, veggies or fungi have gone on the rampage?
The Navy vs The Night Monster
The Woman Eater
Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes (and the sequel)
From Hell It Came
Attack Of The Mushroom People
Dr. Terror's House of Horrors
Little Shop of Horrors
Man-Eater of Hydra (about a vampire type plant starring Cameron Mitchell)
Voyage to a Prehistoric Planet

Well, there is DIE MONSTER DIE, where Nick Adams is attacked by mutated plants.
In Hammer's LOST CONTINENT, the living weeds in the Sargasso Sea love to snack on slow moving passengers.
And in MOTHRA '61, the explorers on Infant Island are attacked by killer vines.

Let's not forget the film with literally the biggest flesh-eating foliage anywhere this side of the universe, 'Godzilla vs. Biollante'. http://www.rodansroost.com/ikonboard/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif And even if it is technically a Kaiju film, it is still a movie, and most important, one that contains 'flesh eating foliage!' Even if Biollante is technically a bioengineered superplant with practically immortality running in her veins...

How about the carnivorous plants in both 'Konga' and 'The Angry Red Planet'. Also the venus-flytrap mutant man in the Donald Pleasance film 'Mutations'. Then there were the killer weeds in the Peter Cushing/Christopher Lee anthology film 'Dr Terror's House of Horrors' (and why the deuce isn't that one out on DVD? )

Also, although I am quite vague on this, 'The Land Unknown' featured gigantic venus flytraps, though correct me if I'm wrong. And then there's also that craptacular 'Swamp Thing' movie, as I recall, Swamp Thingamajig fought this butt-ugly looking thing who hid in swamps, although again I am not sure whether it can be categorized into 'flesh-eating foliage' or not. If not, then I guess S.T. would do the trick.
