    • Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, before we install any plant in our garden or home we should get the history of those plants to avoid any danger that plants may present.

  2. I like your topic. I think we have to know about these things and we should care more about the health of our pets. according to the ASPCA, blue daze (Evolvulus glomeratus) is not considered toxic to dogs. Nonetheless, it is still important to keep an eye on your pet and contact a veterinarian if you notice any unusual symptoms after they have consumed any plant material
