This seed strain of Helleborus foetidus was shared with us by Chapel Hill NC plantsman Tom Krenitsky. Visitors to the garden have marveled at the exceptionally dark green, very serrate leaves, so we introduced it as a named seed strain in 2007. As with all Helleborus foetidus, the plants grow vigorously the first season forming a 20" tall stalk, clothed in dark green, hand-shaped leaves. After the second winter, the clumps are topped with 2' tall thick flower spikes with light green bells.
