What is with hummingbirds and poisonous plants?
I am trying to plan a new garden and it seems that everything I look up (almost everything) is poisonous or parts poisonous. I have dogs and that is my main concern. They are older and don't eat much plants anymore but there is still that chance. I want mostly hummer plants mixed with various colors, textures, bloom times but everytime I look up information there is that dreaded warning. I am not worried about the dogs and hummingbirds, they let other birds share their bowls with them, but I am worried about the dogs and plants. Any ideas? Mostly perrenials, possibly something evergreen to give winter interest, need varying heights. Please help me. I found B&B for 1.99 a piece and got 4 of them to plant throughout so that is only 1 plant, and want to get some lipstick or similar for some red. I also have pineapple sage and mexican sage, cannas, glads, gaura, columbine, and bee balm and roses on the other side of the fence but am at a loss as to the back-yard area.
