Ok, I thought they were. They started blooming a bit earlier than usual. The other plants are right around them. No idea what hey are but they only started showing up a year or two ago so I feel like they are some strange weed.The yellow one is 100% forsythia.
From the UK Tort Table...
Most species of Forsythia are considered to be non-toxic, so you can feed the flowers and leaves in moderation.
- Common Name: Forsythia
- Latin Name: Forsythia spp.
- Family Name: Oleaceae
However, the leaves of Forsythia suspensa contain the glycoside phillyrin, and because we do not know the potency of this glycoside, we advise that if you have a Forsythia suspensa plant then you should feed only the flowers until further information becomes available.
Im not exactly sure what the one on the right is with the white flowers. Looks like it’s right there with your forsythia...
Oh dear, ok. Thanks so much.From TheTortoiseTable..
All parts are toxic containing high amounts of ranunculin which can cause ulceration of the mouth and throat.
- Common Name: Hellebore (Christmas Rose)
- Latin Name: Helleborus spp.
- Family Name: Liliaceae (Ranunculaceae)
Sure, no problem. Although created by UK tortoise keepers, you will find most plants in here that you come across. They are a bit “conservative” regarding what NOT to feed, but, it’s a good place to start. There are so many other good things available, why risk your tort’s life.Oh dear, ok. Thanks so much.
