Flowers and plants that are safe for pets

When sending fresh flowers and plants to somebody special, you want to make sure that they will not present any risk to the recipient's pets. Here are some of the best options from which you can choose if you want to send an impressive bouquet without worrying about possible poisonous effects.


Roses are excellent for all occasions. You can send them as cut flowers and plants alike. When you send roses, make sure that you send the appropriate colour. Each colour sends a different message. For example, a red bouquet makes an excellent romantic gift while yellow roses are a gesture of friendship. White roses are often included in sympathy bouquets. As you can tell, there is a colour for every occasion or event.


These blooms are fantastic for celebrating happy occasions like birthdays, anniversaries or even welcoming a new baby. They are large, bright and beautiful. The best part of all is that they are one of several edible flowers and plants available. Even if their pet takes a nibble, there is no reason to worry about their health or well-being. Of course, the recipient might be disappointed that their beautiful bouquet was 'enjoyed' more by their pet!


If you want to send a floral gift that will impress the recipient by its decadent beauty, you can't go wrong with orchids! They can be sent as flower and plants although they are most often preferred as potted plants because they last that much longer. It is important to note, however, that the flowers and leaves are not toxic but the roots can cause stomach problems. Therefore, it is best to place this plant in an area out of the reach of pets. Alternatively, you can dust the plant with cayenne pepper to keep pets away.

Now that you have several excellent ideas for flowers and plants that are safe for pets, it's time to shop! Should you wish, you can even go so far as to share the cayenne pepper tip with your friend or loved one. This will make it that much easier for them to keep their plant happy and their pets safe.
