    Default Does anyone know what this is??

    Just found DS2 eating some flowers from this. Smells terrible. Just wondering if anyone knows what it is so that I can check if it's poisonous 😨

    Eta i did a Google image search for impatients and i think that's what it is. Agree to call the poisons line to get advice.

    I have some growing in a pot. I don't know the name of them, but I bought the seedlings from Bunnings. I highly doubt they are poisonous.

    I dropped your photo into google and it came up with Rosy Periwinkle or Madagascar Periwinkle.
    It seems to be used in Chinese medicine, and various herbal remedies.
    Also considered a noxious weed in parts of Australia because it has adapted so well!!!
    I'm not 100% that's what it is but if you google rosy Periwinkle you might be able to get some more info.

    Definitely the Rosy Periwinkle and quite toxic! But rang the poisons info line and they said if it's only a small amount that's ingested and he's not displaying any symptoms then he'll be fine.

    He seems ok, but we'll be keeping the kids away from it in future!

    Thank you all for your help
