clematis, toxicity, and children
This is a rather panicked first post - I just bought a clematis (Etoile Violette) and have realised after the fact that it is supposedly poisonous if eaten or even touched. I'm surprised - it doesn't sound like most people develop rashes or worse by being in contact with it judging from the enthusiasm for the plant. My biggest concern is my toddler who still puts random things in her mouth. Should I not plant this as planned? Any thoughts would be welcome!
