The liverleaf is a herbacious perennial plant from the buttercup family. In Germany it is a protected plant. It is not allowed to collect it. The leaves are reminiscent in its shape a little of the human liver, hence the name. After the medieval doctrine of signatures, the plant was formerly used in liver disease as a medicinal plant. All plant parts contain protoanemonin, a weak poison that can cause skin irritation.
