All parts of the February Daphne (Daphne mezereum) are poisonous, especially the fruits, sap and bark.
Non-fatal doses cause vomiting, stomach pain and a burning sensation in the mouth, larger doses include shivering, dilation of the pupils convulsions, and damage to the intestines. The sap was used on cheeks in place of rouge until it was discovered that the rosy cheeks that resulted were indicators of blood vessel damage.
