The majority of cases occur in hilly areas, on the shady side.  The plants are eaten by livestock in the dry season when other grazing is unpalatable.

The flowers are more toxic than the leaves and the toxicity of plants differ both within and between localities.  Plants growing on black clay is less toxic than those plants growing on sandy soils.
