    I'm not sure that water hyacinths and regular hyacinths are the same. I've always been curious. Water lilies and day lilies, too. Both pairs have the same names, but they seem to be very different kinds of plants. Kind of like hogs and groundhogs or creeping jenny and creeping charley. I don't know the scientific names, which I suppose would indicate if they just have the same names in the vernacular because someone decided to refer to them as such, or if they really are related. The article was about in-the-ground hyacinths, so this would seem to be a relevant thing to learn.

    Very pretty! Apparently hibiscus can be grown in dirt in water! And there's a company that developed a tiny orchid in Clear gel needs no care!

    This is exactly why common plant names should not be used when discussing plants.
    A water lily is not a true lily. They are not even distant cousins. The same is true of hyacinths and water hyacinths (which is not really a Hyacinth). We are talking about totally different plants here people.
    The ASPCA has it correct as they are referring to the Water hyacinth and not the terrestrial Hyacinth which is indeed poisonous. All one has to do is make a simple visual comparison of the foliage and blooms of the two different plants to realize that they are not related.
    Waterliles and Water Hyacinth are not toxic. Lilies and Hyacinths are.

    What are these called? Bromillades are animals safe Christmas cactus and orchids hens and chicks painted lady blue echeveria all safe and people put wrong things down all the time so honestly you can think what you want but if a university and someone who sells plants tell you not to use them you don't furthermore my pets are more important than some putty flowers

    these site say about water hyc same scientific name as on aspca Eichhornia crassipes , there must be error somewhere , but i found in more detail and more relevant sites with pets /vets saying its harmful .

    Pond Plants That Are Poisonous for Cats | Garden Guides http://www.gardenguides.com/124632-pond-plants-poisonous-cats.html
    Water hyacinth (Eichhornia Crassipes) can cause vomiting and anorexia in cats. It is also toxic to dogs and horses. The water hyacinth is normally found in the fresh waters of Florida. The plant's appearance is recognized by its rounded, leathery and waxy green leaves with dark feathery roots that suspend down into the water, making the plant float above the pond. The water hyacinth sprouts lavender flowers when it blooms. It cannot thrive in cold climates but can create new growth from submerged stem tips that are protected from the freezing water.


    in this website its listed too
    Poisonous plants for cats. Toxic plants to avoid if you have cats. http://www.dirtonmyhands.com/poisonous-plants-to-cats.html
    Water Hyacinth Scientific Name: Eichhornia crassipes -- Family: Pontederiaceae



    Water Hyacinth Poisoning in Dogs - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment, Recovery, Management, Cost https://www.vetary.com/dog/condition/water-hyacinth-poisoning

    Symptoms of Water Hyacinth Poisoning in Dogs Symptoms of water hyacinth toxicity in dogs may include: Lethargy Anorexia Vomiting Possibly diarrhea Types The water hyacinth belongs to the Pontederiaceae family with the scientific name of Eichhornia crassipes. This plant is commonly found in water gardens due to its aesthetically pleasing look and large floating leaves. The water hyacinth is not the same as the normal hyacinth plant. The water hyacinth is native to South America and is considered an invasive plant in North America. It is a floating plant with round/oval green leaves with a flower that blooms in a blue-violet or lilac color. These plants grow and reproduce quickly making them a pest and potential problem for waterfront areas. It is such an issue, the water hyacinth is known as the worst aquatic plant.



    Cats are very sensitive to poisoning because they lack a liver enzyme that breaks down poisons and toxins and that is present in many other animals including humans. This protein is called UGT1A6 and is missing in the Large Cats as well as domesticated cats, or rather is produced in very small insufficient quantities.

    Obviously confusion reigns as to the actual toxicity of Water Hyacinth (E. crassipes).

    The first site linked above states the toxicity of this plant but provides a link to the ASPCA. The exact link that states that E. crassipes is not toxic.

    The second site linked above not only offers a disclaimer that the author is no expert, but also provides a link to Merck, which is and old established source of veterinary information. Nowhere on their site is either E. crassipes or Nympaea (Water Lily) listed as toxic
    .
    And the third site inked above is a company(Vetary) that offers financial services to veterinarians. I would question their bona fides as diagnosticians.

    I remain at my original position. Even more so now since I have seen the Merck site.

    just like ponding everything is in debate about good and bad .My dogs can't get near the pond a Sylvester Purrbody and PussyGalore have been been dead for years and were inside cats .I always kept my plants out of reach of my pets .The cats would get zapped by a spray bottler of water and when I was not home the door to the plants was always closed

    Anyone who puts their pets at risk have issues with neglect my animals are loving plants are not I can see who loves animals on this forum and is willing to do research. Unless you are a accredited botanist phd I will make sure I follow what top notch universities tell me.

    I believe he is trying to help, if you are only going to listen to an accredited botanist then why ask the question on this forum in the first place?
