You know how some things just don’t go as planned. I had planned to write this awesome informative post about which plants and flowers are safe for pets and which are poisonous. The more research I did the further down the rabbit hole I found myself. Things also have a way of working themselves out though and I am so glad I have found safe flowers for pets from Nearly Natural, plants too!

I had been planning this article since last year. I stopped trying as I got so frustrated with my research.

Recently, Nearly Natural reached out to me and I realized I had a whole new direction to take my blog article and my decisions about plants and flowers for my home decor!

As I said, in trying to find safe flowers for pets the research was hard.

Now if you have a degree in botany or have a knack for learning all the different species, strains, genus and hybrids of plants and flowers great.

If you are an average person like myself you will probably have as hard a time feeling safe and secure about the information you uncover.

For example lilies … Some are poisonous some are not.

I can look up Tiger Lily versus Daylily.

That’s easy enough.

But am I sure am I really secure that the lilies in my yard are the species I think they are.

I can tell they’re not Tiger Lilies those are very distinct.

But are they Daylilies?

When it comes to the safety of my pets and other animals that come across flora and fauna in my yard I want to know for sure.

Did you know that the common tomato plant can be toxic to animals?

That was a shock to me, I love growing tomatoes.

Some plants and flowers require the animal to actually eat the leaves, or the seeds, or root.

Not all plants will kill your pet outright.

Personally, it’s not a risk I want to take!

I have gorgeous lilies growing in my yard that will be pulled out because of what I have learned.

This is also why I highly recommend when it comes to plants and flowers for the inside of your home you use Nearly Natural.

That’s what I’m doing.

Nearly Natural Provides Safe Flowers For Your Pets.

Safe Flowers For Pets From Nearly Natural, Plants Too! Beautiful Cherry Blossom on Light Blue Background

There are other benefits to buying from Nearly Natural:

You will have beautiful plants and flowers that truly look real all year long.

Oh and another great part… no green thumb necessary!

Now I can enjoy any type of flower or plant that I wish to have in or outside of my home.

I am no longer limited by what’s safe and I can creatively decorate any way I wish.

Of course, I love real plants and flowers.

It’s true that Nearly Natural flowers have no scent but I rarely smell much scent from real flowers anyway.

I just spritz a little bit of floral scent on these to make them smell pretty.

You will save money because you never have to replace them with new flowers.

These flowers and plants can be tucked away and alternated throughout the year with seasonal displays or when you want something different.

What is most important though is that my pets are safe from harm.

My Safe Flowers For Pets Choices:

I selected this stunning Cherry Blossom In Large Vase.

It fit perfectly with the decor of my bedroom.

According to The Daily Puppy, cherry blossom is, in fact, poisonous to dogs.

The Nest reports that they are also toxic to cats.

So I would never have real cherry blossom in my home or yard.

Yet, cherry blossom is a flower I dearly love as you can see by my not so great artwork behind my new flowers.

My Next Safe Flowers For Pets Selection:

I selected Peony And Mum In Glass Vase for my dining table.

I love keeping flowers on my table as it is so welcoming and inviting.

The glass vases from Nearly Natural even have faux water in the bottom!

How cool is that?

Oh, by the way, Nearly Natural offers free shipping!

Now that is really cool!

And yes, the Mum and the Peony flower is very toxic to cats and dogs!

Scary when I think of how many Peony I see growing wild around me.

Isn’t it just gorgeous!

I added the butterfly for kicks.

Safe Plants For Pets:

I love that I can get safe flowers for pets from Nearly Natural but we can also get safe plants!

Plants can be toxic and poisonous to our furbabies too and that makes me sad.

So many things out there that can harm them.

I do not like to be an alarmist but as I said, the research I did took me down a rabbit hole.

One that was very deep and scary.

Heck, I hope the rabbits are safe out there.

Wild animals tend to have instincts about what’s safe to munch on and what’s not.

Our house pets, not so much.

My Tibet will gnaw on everything!

Many plants such as the very common Philodendron is very toxic to pets.

I wanted some succulent though so I looked them up.

My research was mixed when it came to succulents.

First, there are so many types.

Second, one site would say they are mostly okay around pets, but they all said look up each type!

Wait, what?

I do not know enough about types of succulents to even start!

Also, I do not have a full day let alone days, to go to the plant shop, using my phone to Google each and every type that I may purchase.

Besides, I wanted a collection of mixed succulents.

What if I found a pretty one that had 3 types that were safe with 2 that were not?

Forget about it!

It’s Nearly Natural for me!

My Succulent Selection:

I opted for the Mixed Succulent Artificial Plant In Vase.

The container is perfect for my decor and I love the purple hue on some of the succulents.

I swear, when you touch it, it does almost feel real!

It certainly looks real!

Succulents also make great Father’s Day gifts, which is coming up soon.

I mean seriously, Nearly Natural hit it out of the ballpark with everything.

I am so thrilled!

Free shipping, free returns, satisfaction guarantee.

You can’t beat it.

Everything was shipped so well and I did not have to arrange or fluff anything up.

I literally opened the boxes and I was good to go.

Each item was shipped in their own box to protect the plants and flowers.

When it comes to safe flowers for pets, I am not a rocket scientist.

I get it, some of you may be well versed in what is safe and what isn’t.

Surely I could figure it out with the help of Google right?

Nope!

Like looking up any symptoms of illness, you know we all end up with a brain tumor when we do that, I gave up.

That’s the beauty of the Interwebz though.

So much information it can be dangerous to even embark on finding the right answers.

Even the most trusted resources left me confused as they all want to have a disclaimer of some type that leaves you guessing.

Such as certain strains, specific genus, species, or hybrids can result in a different outcome.

I Want To Know For Sure That My Pets Are Safe! 

It would kill me to discover that something I bought killed them!

Nearly Natural offers me and fellow pet lovers flowers and plants we can count on to be pet safe.

They are the most beautiful artificial plants and flowers that I have a hard time even referring to them as artificial.

I feel really good knowing I will not harm my precious furbabies and can still be stylish with my decor!

    This is such a great resource! There are so many plants out there that are toxic to dogs and cats, and cats, in particular, seem drawn to plants.

    • June 6, 2018 / 3:46 am

      They really do and it’s frightening. I am so glad to have a real viable and beautiful alternative!

    Wow those plants and flowers look so real! Being owned by several cats, and finding out that my beloved stargazer lilies were toxic to them came as quite a shock, especially as I had lost count of the number of times I had had them in my home 😱 I have always avoided artificial flowers because they look, well, artificial! The pictures above have changed my mind! I shall be checking out Nearly Natural to see if they do stargazers, but I have a feeling I won’t be stopping at just those! Thanks for a great article 😊

    • June 6, 2018 / 3:48 am

      Tracey they truly do and they look even more amazing in person. I am just over the moon about them.
      I am so happy you like the article and the plants and flowers.
      It’s scary about how toxic even deadly some are to pets.
      I mean I felt so frustrated trying to write what I had initially planned to write!
      I had the article in my drafts for a LONG time.
      Then I had the chance with Nearly Natural and flipped the whole script lol.
      I really am VERY happy that they truly do look so beautiful.
      I agree, I never was into artificial myself, but now I am!

  3. June 5, 2018 / 4:54 pm

    I have no pets and no plants, so I am 100% safe! LOL! I only really knew of those Christmas plants being poisonous to animals though!

  4. June 5, 2018 / 5:47 pm

    Artificial plants can be a gorgeous addition to you home. Keep them away from pets too. My dog likes to chew on them! 😳

    • June 6, 2018 / 3:40 am

      Ah yes some pets will chew on anything. Your dog sounds like my cat Tibet.

  5. June 5, 2018 / 10:13 pm

    I don’t think there is anything in my house that is a danger to my cat, but then again I only have one house plant and it hasn’t bothered her yet. Its always good to make sure. I worry most about tinsel at Christmas, which I try not to use and ornaments that break or she attempts to play with.

    • June 6, 2018 / 3:50 am

      Ahhhh yes! Tinsel is the WORST! I don’t even like to think about what I have had to do to get that out of my cat before. LOL!!! I do not use it anymore.

  6. June 5, 2018 / 10:53 pm

    My cat would chew any flower or plants we had out. He has now passed (unrelated to the flowers) and I have to start putting flowers out sometimes.

    • June 6, 2018 / 3:51 am

      Aweee I am sorry your kitty is no longer with you. Yes time to start decorating with plants and flowers again. I still suggest trying Nearly Natural though, I mean buy ONCE and done!

  7. June 6, 2018 / 8:58 am

    Interesting! My pets all live outside except for evenings when we bring them in. I’ve never thought about things around the house being toxic to them. We would like our next pet to live inside so I’ll have to think about that!

    • June 7, 2018 / 12:14 am

      Esther I understand and I never realized how many things were toxic to animals until I started the research. I mean clearly, so many animals do just fine around these plants and flowers but on the other hand, its also rolling the dice. Just something to keep in mind for the future when you have your inside pet.

  8. June 6, 2018 / 10:07 am

    This helps so much! I have pets, and we’ve always played it safe and just not kept any plants indoors just in case. My parents are the same way (probably where i get it from)

    • June 7, 2018 / 12:14 am

      That is so cool that you got it from your parents! Playing it safe is best for sure.

  9. June 6, 2018 / 1:34 pm

    I buy flowers from local market twice a week. I have no pets, so there is nothing to worry about. I think this is a very useful article for pet owners, a great guidance what to buy or not to buy.

    • June 7, 2018 / 12:15 am

      Rika I love that you treat yourself to flowers regularly! You deserve it!

  10. June 6, 2018 / 2:26 pm

    Sometimes it is hard to keep my cats away from plants around my house. Lately they’ve been better but I do worry – thanks for these ideas!

    • June 7, 2018 / 12:19 am

      I hear you Kate! I have a really hard time keeping one of my cats away from them too. You are so welcome I know you will love Nearly Natural plants and flowers.

  11. June 6, 2018 / 6:17 pm

    That sounds like a great product. I have friends whose dogs and cats have gotten into the plants and ended up super sick. I would love to check this out.

    • June 7, 2018 / 12:16 am

      Awee that is sad to hear but just proof that artificial is best. Especially when they are as gorgeous as Nearly Natural!

  12. June 6, 2018 / 9:13 pm

    This is a great post. We have two cats that love eating all flowers and plants in our home. We have opted to simply not have them but that’s not very realistic. I love the cacti you chose and would really enjoy having that on my kitchen table!

    • June 7, 2018 / 12:17 am

      Oh I have a cat that will eat any plant or flower I bring home too! I know how that goes lol. That cacti even feels pretty dang real for being artificial. You will love it!

  13. June 7, 2018 / 5:42 am

    That is so interesting because I never even thought about plants being harmful to pets. It makes total sense though, especially with cats because it is not uncommon for them to chew on them. Thanks for sharing this info!

    • June 9, 2018 / 3:37 pm

      Laura you are so welcome! I am always happy to share anything that can keep our pets safe.

    I don’t have pets in my home and I don’t need to worry more about it. But this flowers really looks so real and I think I need to get these to add decor to our house.

    • June 9, 2018 / 3:37 pm

      Rose Ann you are so right! Even those without pets can totally enjoy these flowers and plants! They look absolutely stunning and they never need to be replaced! I like that in and of itself!
