Safe Plants for Cats


Sue Hepworth added on April 1, 2017 | Answered

Hello, I notice here that you say geraniums are safe for cats https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/spaces/cat-friendly-garden.htm However, on other websites it says that they are toxic. https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control/toxic-and-non-toxic-plants/geranium I am keen to keep my garden cat friendly, so would appreciate confirmation on what is the correct information. Many thanks Sue

The article you mention, list Scented Geranium as non toxic to cats.
Scented Geranium are actually Pelergoniums and are not related to Geraniums.

Geraniums are listed as toxic to cats, but not Pelergoniums/Scented Geraniums.
