Pheasants Eye contains cardiac glycosides, which interfere with heart function, and is recorded as being toxic to horses and pigs, and to a lesser degree to cattle.  Although we can find no research indicating the effects of this plant on tortoises, we would advise tortoise keepers to err on the side of caution and not include this plant in the tortoise diet.

The flowers of Pheasants Eye are a deep, rich red with dark centres.
