199 Common Plants to Avoid


Last year, Erica Daniels put together a fabulous info-graphic listing 199 common, but poisonous, plants. You can view the original article + infographic in its entirety here. Ms. Daniels not only made the info-graphic easy to read, she did a couple really cool things like note toxicity levels and the part of the plant, which is poisonous. And (possibly best of all) she shows if the plant is toxic to dogs, cats or kids.poisonous-flowers-rd2-4

    1. I’m glad you also thought the information was relevant and useful … I also suspect that you are already highly aware of which plants are not good for cats, because I know how much time you spend researching this topic.

    1. I am so glad you liked it! I know many cat-followers stay indoors, but humans have a habit of bringing plants and flowers indoors for special occasions. (Christmas has some very dangerous plants.)

      1. Yeah mommy luvs plant, and used to have a bunch of them. Lots were poisonous, but since she grows us grass we leave hers alone. Course right now we don’t have any. They all died durin’ da redo of our ‘pawrtment after da flood when mommy wasn’t here to take care of them. She says someday she’ll get more.

      2. We are trying to make sure that we do NOT plant poky or poisonous plants in the back yard, where the furry ones are allowed without their harnesses/leashes. The exception is some young citrus trees that have some very anti-social thorns.

      3. It’s always a good idea to avoid da deadly and poisonous. Mommy likes to raise us around those plants so we get used to stayin’ away from them. Mommy’s one of those dat likes to train fur any circumstance. Bein’ poor and renters, we never know what situation we might find ourselves in, so mommy tries to be purro-active. But ifin we had our own place she would do like you and avoid them all together.

      4. We only try to avoid them in the back yard, where kids and furries can play without major supervision … when on hikes, etc., when furries are on leashes, they have the opportunity to investigate other types of plants, etc. under supervision.
