In one book, sweet/Christmas box is labelled as poisonous. Is it?

suffolk, United Kingdom

Which parts? how poisonous ?

On plant sarcococca confusa



No indication that it's poisonous in my RHS book. I'll check on a list of poisonous plants that I have...

No, not listed there, either - it's a pretty comprehensive list, so I reckon it must be OK.

So I suppose nobody's tried the nice looking dark red berries then?
