It is used in herbal medicine, both the roots and the upper parts of the plant, though it can be toxic in moderate doses. The plant exudes a bright yellow to orange latex when cut, which can stain. The latex has been used externally for application to warts, corns and moles. The plant contains a range of isoquinoline alkaloids. Traditionally the plant has been used for a range of inflammatory diseases including atopic dermatitis. The root can be chewed to relieve toothache.
The plant grows in a wide range of soils and from full sun to shade. It prefers a moist soil and dappled shade.
