If you use your backyard as an extension of your home and a place for your family dog to play, be careful which landscaping plants you choose. What may seem like a pretty harmless-looking flower can actually be deadly to dogs. According to the ASPCA, hardy perennial flowers are incredibly toxic to them. These include flowers like mums, hostas, iris and yarrow flowers. And flowers that are bulb plants can also be poisonous to dogs. Gardeners know wild animals stay clear of daffodils because they’re one of the most toxic flowering plants out there. Other bulb flowers that are toxic include hyacinth, tulips, lilies and alliums.
