HISTORY
Lore Helleborus is an ancient plant that originated in southern and central Europe with documented use dating back beyond the Middle Ages and ancient civilizations. Various species were used by the Greek and Romans to ward off evil spirits and treat paralysis, gout, and insanity, though it is a known fact that all plants in this genus contain toxic compounds and should not be ingested. The upside: these toxic properties make the plants undesirable to deer and rabbits, so hellebores are a great solution in areas where grazing can be an issue.
