To the detriment of the delicate appearance, Helleborus is a poisonous plant if ingested. In the past it was used as a medication remedy: Hippocrates administered the Rose of Christmas as a laxative and diuretic remedy and against mental disorders; such use was then suspended due to its high toxicity.
In many European regions, for its autumn / winter bloom and for various popular beliefs, it is linked to the Christian tradition.
