Are poinsettias, mistletoe, and holly poisonous?
    
Poinsettas, mistletoe, holly and pyrancantha are common holiday decorations. Toddlers have been known to play with and even eat these beautiful plants. Contrary to a popular myth, poinsettias are not poisonous to humans, but consuming large amounts of the plant can cause cramping and diarrhea.

Mistletoe, holly, and pyrancantha are toxic if ingested; these plants caise severe stomach crams and diarrhea, and even can be fatal. If you suspect that your toddler has consumed any of these plants, immediately call your poison control center.
