I have just purchased a small Helleborus niger, also known as Christmas rose, and didn't know that it is poisonous in larger quantities. I have googled a bit and found out that the seeds are especially dangerous but couldn't find anything about the leaves or flowers.
We have a toddler and although she doesn't take things in her mouth anymore I am now unsure if I should plant it or give it back to the Garden centre. I would love to keep it as we have clay soil and part shade, so this plant is ideal, but obviously I won't risk the safety of my child! Does anyone have this plant and children and can advise me? Thank you!
