This marvelous form of H. foetidus was discovered by Martin Cragg-Barber of Chedglow Nursery in the UK but has also prospered on this side of the pond. The 2' tall stalks of golden, mostly variegated leaves...brightest in spring...are topped in late winter with typical large, green candelabra-type heads. In the South, the summer foliage becomes more of a chartreuse green. We have found 90% of the plants started from seed are gold. The seed strain of this plant is sold under the invalid name of H. 'Gold Bullion'. As with all Helleborus foetidus, good drainage is essential for best performance.
