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!
Safe Flowers For Pets From Nearly Natural, Plants Too!
Disclosure: This is sponsored content. I have been compensated for this post in payment and product. I only recommend brands I have personally tried and love.
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.
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!
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?
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!
