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
