Folio 48r, False Hellebore or Sweet Vernal (Adonis Vernalis), is found in the drier regions of Southern Europe. The flowers of this plant are yellow. The author of the VM appears at times to be limited or without different colored paints; this may be one example. False Hellebore has properties similar to digitalis for stimulating the heart, but its action is stronger and is said not to be cumulative.
