Our first plants of Helleborus foetidus were a wonderful form from the late Rachel Dunham of Cary, NC. Over the years, we segregated out this narrow leaf race we found to have a particularly nice texture. The first season, the plants grow rapidly, forming a substantial, thick, 20" tall, green stalk adorned with dark green, narrowly-cut evergreen foliage. In spring, the deer-resistant clumps are topped with a giant candelabra of green bells that would have made Liberace proud. Helleborus foetidus is a short-lived perennial so allow it to seed in place, which it does quite well.
