What do you mean "Please provide more information, apart from just the question." I filled out all the forms for contact. And now this never ending circle, all without the answer to my original question "Are any part of Star of Bethlehem edible?"

The University of NC lists these as the
"Poison Parts" of the plant:
Bark, Flowers,Fruits,Leaves,Roots,Sap/Juice,Seeds,
Stems. One source says that at one time, the boiled roots were used in time of famine, but most official sources say the entire plant is poisonous.
