There's nothing better than surrounding your home and backyard with beautiful plants, especially during the warmer months in the summer. They can bring a lot of life and cheer to your day.
But some can be extremely dangerous to the little ones in your house--namely, kids and pets.

As it turns out, one of the most popular home and backyard plants is poisonous to children and dogs--the Sago Palm. And if they eat a seed from it, the results could be deadly.
"One or two seeds is enough to kill a dog, or even a child," Dr. Tina Wismer, medical director of the ASPCA said.
Frighteningly, this has happened before. In the last 10 years alone, more than 1,400 dogs have been poisoned by the Sago, and 34 of those dogs later died. And there have been at least 130 human cases of poisoning from the widely available plant since 2009.
