The Gardener’s Answer
Hi, Jan: As pet owners, we are responsible for protecting our four-legged friends. This includes giving careful thought to what we plant in the garden. Sedum, carex, as well as artemesia are not included on the list of toxic plants for dogs according to the Animal Poison Control Center and the ASPCA. This list may not be all-inclusive and just to be safe, you should contact your veterinarian. If you have a dog that likes to nibble in the garden, avoid using any harmful sprays on your plants. The residue can be very dangerous.
