I’ve recently learned that there are two types of Hybiscus that are toxic to dogs (Tropical and Hardy). Can you tell me if this is either of those? We’ve added a puppy to our family that likes to chew on everything he finds in the yard.

    Your hibiscus appears to belong to the tropical group. (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) According to sources the hardy hibiscus – Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus) is toxic for dogs. There are some confusion information on which Hibiscus species is toxic. Although most sites would named rose of Sharon (H. syriacus) is the toxic one. Check out some of the included links below for the subject of dogs consuming hibiscus. Congrats & best wishes to your new puppy!
