anelson's Stinking hellebore 'bearsfoot' x 1 Budding

Plant: Stinking hellebore (Helleborus foetidus) | Variety: bearsfoot

  • Very Happy

THe name for the lovely plant is misleading—it has no scent unless you crush the leaves, then the pungent scent is rather pleasant, i think.
Winter is its main season but it looks nice all year.
