Plants For Duck Pens


I have been reading that the following plants are good to plant in a duck pen.

Sedge grass,
Montbretia,
Ornamental grasses, including pampas and ferns,
Evergreen shrubs
Dwarf varieties
Evergreen plants such as:
Cotoneaster,
Eleagnus,
Pyracantha,
Berberis,
Rhododendron,
Pieris ‘Forest Flame’,
Small ground cover plants such as:
Periwinkle,
Potentilla,
Rock Rose,
Heathers,
Hostas.

The source for this info was http://www.waterfowl.org.uk/docs/plants_and_pens.pdf

I am sure I have read somewhere that lily of the valley is poisonous to ducks but can’t remember where I read this.
