    I don't have small children anymore, but 3 little dogs.. so that is my only worry about plants that are poisonous if by chance they would eat or chew on something.. I always try to check and make sure I have all non poisonous plants inside the fence area by the pool where my dogs are and keep the bad ones outside perimeters.. That is the problem they are so beautiful but can be bad too.. thanks
