    Seven Common Holiday Plants Toxic for Birds (if you know of others, please list them)

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope you are all well. I was reading about holiday plants since we will be celebrating the Christmas Season very soon here in the U.S. and thought we might refresh our thoughts on some poisonous holiday plants that tend to find their way into our homes.

    Here is the article: http://chemistry.about.com/od/toxicc...day-plants.htm


    This is the list of plants they speak of in the article:
    Poinsettia
    Mistletoe
    Holly
    Amaryllis
    Cyclamen
    Christmas Trees
    Jerusalem Cherry

    That's indeed important information which each of us should heed, Alice. Thanks for posting it!

    And a few more potentially toxic holiday plants to add to the list are:

    Christmas Cactus
    Lilies
    Ivy
    Living Christmas Wreaths
