General description and domicile:
The False Hellebore is a very poisonous plant that is native to Europe and northern Asia where it grows wild in damp sites on the sides of mountains. It is a perennial foot-high plant very similar to the Anemone.
The pale green leaves are smooth on top but hairy underneath and has a pretty cluster of bright red buttercup-like flowers on short spikes that grow from the leave joints.

Warning: Extreme care must be taken when handling this plant as very little contact with Veratrum can be fatal.

Part used and extraction:
The root is used, harvested before the flowering season.

Chopped and steeped in alcohol to obtain mother tincture

The Gauls used the poisonous sap of this plant to coat their arrows for hunting and the war against the Romans.
