    Default Frangipani poisonous?

    I have just bought frangipanis to plant throughout my garden, but a friend of mine said they were poisonous Is this true?
    I'd hate to plant them and when bubs is mobile he eat some and get sick. I tried to google it but couldn't realy find anything.
    Please help. If they are toxic, I won't plant them

    Thanks

    Well, this is what I was told.

    I wanted to have cut frangipanis on my wedding cake, but apparently the 'blood' is toxic and can cause poisoning if ingested.

    I dont think the petals are dangerous, though, dont quote me, but yes, I was told that you couldnt insert the stems into a cake for this reason.

    I know, I was looking at planting some frangipani too, but I'm a bit worried that my dog will go on a munch attack as she likes to...lol.

    You can get miniature frangipani which dont grow into a huge tree and pot it perhaps?

    Hi,

    I have four frannies and as far as I know the flowers are not poisonous, the 'milk' that comes out from the leaves or stems will cause a rash - or a burn and well I guess if eaten would be poisonous.

    Having said this my MIL's boxer ate - yes ate an entire frangipani tree, flowers, leaves and stems!!! She lived to a very old age - longer than normal for a boxer!

    DD loves to pick the flowers and then shread them to pieces - so danty and distructive! Nothing has happened so far - then again she likes the taste the pot plant water so WHO KNOWS?!

    I haven't actually heard of them being poisonous - only that the milk will give you a rash.

    Try the gardening australia website: http://www.abc.net.au/gardening/default.htm I believe you can also post questions there too....

    cheers Kath

    Yeah my MIL's boxer was a fruitcake - she ate lots of plants, as well as the occational basketball and shoe. Very cute dog but just not all there.

    Warning about the frangipanis - You'll get hooked - I have the common white and yellow but recently bought a bright pink flowering one.....SOOO pretty!!!!

    Have fun!

    Kath.

    P.s. I have two growing in a pot and they LOVE it....The pots are very big though.
