Helleborus foetidus

Stinking Hellebore
Perhaps the hardiest of the Hellebores, this handsome evergreen plant begins producing flowering stalks in early winter with pale green blossoms, which continue to emerge through March and into April. Our seedling strain of H. foetidus has 'Wester Flisk' and 'Sopron' in its heritage, and seedlings vary ever so slightly but many have red tints to the leaf petioles and stems, and a slight silvery overcast to the foliage. H. foetidus is a caulescent form and blossoms are formed on stems from the previous year. Grows 18-24" tall and self sows very well for naturalizing..
