The bulbs of the tulip plant contain most of the tulipanin - the toxic principle which can cause vomiting, depression, diarrhea, and hypersalivation. You might see transient gastrointestinal distress - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea - from ingesting the flowers but significant toxicity isn't expected. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
