Do You Know Which Flowers Are Poisonous? Cumming, GA
blooming flowers

Whether you are planting them in your yard or sending them in a bouquet to a friend, flowers are meant to convey beauty and evoke a positive reaction. Unfortunately, looks can be deceiving, even with flowers. There are several common flower varieties that are poisonous if ingested or even touched.

While you certainly don’t plan on eating your flowers, it is important to know when to keep curious children and pets out of harm’s way. From diarrhea and vomiting to organ failure and even death, toxic blooms are something you should know about. Here are some well-known flowers that need to be looked at instead of nibbled on:

  • Baby’s Breath
  • Calla Lily
  • Daffodil
  • Foxglove
  • Hydrangea
  • Iris
  • Larkspur
  • Marigold
  • Tulip

Keep in mind that the above flowers are still generally safe to grow in your yard, but you’ll need to exercise proper precaution to keep your family and pets safe. While some of these flowers would have to be ingested in large amounts to cause harm, others have high levels of toxicity that require them to be avoided altogether.

To ensure your seasonal planting offers beauty instead of danger, hire a professional to do the job. At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we have experts who can help you choose the best spring flowers for your family’s unique needs and goals. Call our Cumming landscape team today!

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
