Description

A selected form of the ever popular 'Stinking Hellebore' made by a world renowned Belgian grower. This form has larger than the specie, with vibrant green flowers on very sturdy stems. Evergreen and very hardy.

The name 'Stinking Hellebore' is quite an unfair epithet as the plant only smells when rubbed against and even then, the smell is not strong and certainly not stinking! Once described on the nursery as smelling of 'green', this most appropriately describes the smell; foliar and quite Elder-like (Sambucus).

A great plant for shady spots, including growing under trees, but versatile enough to grow in most situations other than waterlogged soils.

Height: 60 - 75cm (in flower).
Spread: 40cm.

CAUTION: Plants in this genus are poisonous if eaten and a skin irritant.
