    Background

    Black hellebore is a winter-blooming perennial in the Ranunculaceae family, hence its nickname of 'Christmas Rose'. The scientific name comes from the Greek words 'Helein', meaning injures, and 'Bora', meaning food, referring to the toxic properties when the plant is eaten. The specific name 'niger', which means black, is in reference to the color of the roots.
