Some household and many garden plants are poisonous if they are eaten. Follow these guidelines to keep children safe until they are old enough to understand that they should not eat any part of a plant unless you say it’s OK.
Potentially poisonous plants include:
angel's trumpet four o'clock philodendron apple seeds foxglove poinsettia autumn crocus golden chain poison hemlock baneberry horse chestnut poison ivy belladonna lilly tree poison oak black locust hyacinth pokeweed bleeding heart hydrangea potato (eyes, stems, bloodroot inkberry spoiled parts) buttercups iris privet caladium jack-in-the-pulpit rhododendron castor bean lady's slipper rhubarb leaves cherry tree lantana rosary pea chinaberry tree larkspur skunk cabbage Christmas rose lily of the snake root cowslip valley sneezeweed daffodil lupine snow-on-the-mountain daphne mayapple snowdrop deadly amanita milkweed sourdock death camas mistletoe sweetpea dieffenbachia monkshood sumac elderberry moonseed tobacco elephant's ear morning glory tomato (leaves) English holly mountain laurel water hemlock English ivy narcissus wisteria false hellebore nettle yellow jasmine fig tree nightshade yew fly agaric oleander mushroom peach tree
It’s possible for any plant to make a child sick, even if the plant is not poisonous. If a child eats a plant and you have any questions, call your regional poison control center.
