Hellebore plants contain a toxin called protoanemonin. The plants are seriously poisonous only if large quantities are eaten. Consumption at this level is rare, as the plant is quite bitter to the taste and the major reason why these plants aren't touched by deer.

Ingesting the plant can cause burning of the mouth and throat, excessive salivation, vomiting, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, nervous symptoms, and depression. Contact with the sap can cause skin irritation, so wear gloves when handling it.
