 If you are planning a new landscape design, let the designer be aware of all family pets within the household. It is generally a good idea to monitor pets while they are outside. Young pets have a tendency to be mischievous, chew, eat and dig everything in sight. Once pets have matured, it is highly unlikely they will find an interest in your outdoor shrubs, perennials, annuals, bulbs or vegetable garden plants.

Listed are several plants to keep a close watch on.

Oleander thrives in the sandy soil at the coast. If you have these gorgeous plants in your landscape for the beach house, they are toxic.

Tropical plants are sometimes utilized outdoors in pots, as annuals like; alocasia, aloe, begonia, caladium, coleus, geranium, moss rose. These are toxic.

Pieris, American holly berries, azalea, crocus, asian lily, English and poison  ivy, calla lily, gardenia,

lobelia, Lenten rose,

 mums, clematis, privet, daffodil, daylily, easter lily, elephant ears, foxglove, iris, hyacinth, gladiola, Rose of Sharon, several varieties of  hydrangea,  lantana, lily of the valley, nandina, peony,

vinca, primrose, rhododendron, st john’s wort, and yarrow

If you know your animals/pets will constantly chew and dig in your landscape, think about having a fence surrounding your toxic plants to ensure the safety of  your 4-legged friends. This way the family will have a peace of mind.
