Christmas Rose (Helleborus)

Christmas Rose (Helleborus) is an evergreen plant that shows it's blossoms in deep winter (although we are still waiting for winter to show up...)
The wildly growing plants, which can be found in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Croatia, Slovenia and Northern Italy are extremely endangered.
Containing Saponin and Protoanemonin as well as the cardio-toxin Helleborin, all parts of the plant are extremely toxic
