Helleborus foetidus                                                                                          Foetidus Lenten Rose

Foetidus is a unique Helleborus in that if forms small bell shaped flowers that are light green with purplish edges.

However, this Helleborus produces abundant clusters of these small blooms creating a showstopping display.

This characteristic also makes them a good cut flower. All Helleborus are very early spring bloomers, blooming even before Azaleas do.

They do best in filtered shade with winter protection from harsh winds. Warning: poisonous if eaten
