Are moonflower plants poisonous?
I have three very pretty and heavily blooming Moonflowers in the house I just bought. I also have a dog who, despite my best efforts, treats the outdoors as his own personal salad bar. Are these plants dangerous to him? If I have to go to the trouble of moving them outside the fence line, I will. They have some chicken wire around the lowest parts, but now small plants are starting to grow outside that barrier. I try and watch him carefully, but I would like to know if this is a poisonous plant because then I just can't have it. Thank you in advance for your help with this matter. Nicole Cater
