I found a pack of "edible flowers" at the local grocery.

I bought dandelion greens the day before and the bunny loved them.

So, I bought these.

 

I called the company and found that the pack contained marigolds, orchids, and snapdragons.

 

They are supposed to be edible to humans, but are they edible to bunnies?

The internet seems to be in consensus that marigolds are alright, but I'm not sure about any of the other ones.

I read about the goodness of marigolds in the BB forums so I gave 2 to Penelope.

 

The internet tells me that the orchids are nontoxic and are commonly eaten in gardens by wild rabbits.

The same is for snapdragons.

 

The internet also tells me that marigolds are bunny-safe flowers that rabbits hate to eat, but Penelope ate the marigolds so quickly that I don't believe that is always true.

I like to be really careful with flowers and herbs. I only feed the flower packs that are made for bunnies. Also, I'm lazy and don't want to bother checking what's okay and not.
