Was doing gardening today, chopping off the flowers from some Agapanthus “Lily of the Nile” plants in the backyard, to prevent them from popping their seeds about and spreading like herpes, but didn’t think too much of it until Pippa and Chip started licking the sap off my arms while I was playing with them.
Being the paranoid person I am, I decided to do some research into whether Agapanthus is poisonous to dogs or not, and it turns out all parts of the plant are poisonous to dogs!!
Agapanthus bulbs are especially poisonous and causes kidney failures (ie death) in cats and dogs.
In fact, they are also poisonous to humans, just the sap is known to cause rash and skin irritation on people.
DAMN YOU AGAPANTHUS!!!!! Lily of the Nile my @$$! You are not even an actual Lily! I don’t care how overgrown you are, I am going to eradicate your every single plant down to the roots.
I will not let the dogs run loose in the yard until all the poisonous plants, all which are left by the previous property owner, are completely destroyed.
We even have a Brugmansia tree in the backyard, which is highly toxic to both humans and our canine companions.
Brugmansia are also known as Angel’s Trumpets, which to me sounds like a stupid joke. Yeah~~ Whoever ingests the plant will die and hear the Angel’s trumpets alright~~~
WHY WOULD ANYONE GROW POISONOUS PLANTS ON THEIR PROPERTY FULL STOP!!
