Amaryllis plants


I love amaryllis but was told they are poisonous to cats. Is this true?


Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners. Amaryllis (Hippeastrum spp.) is poisonous, especially the bulbs. It can be especially harmful to pets. I do not have veterinary training, so I recommend that you consult with your vet for more information.

Here are a couple of websites that might be helpful :
