We originally obtained this unique Helleborus foetidus seed strain from Dick and Judith Tyler, who got it from the Georgia garden of Piccadilly Farm's Sam and Carleen Jones. The deer-resistant foliage of Helleborus foetidus 'Piccadilly' is a very dark grey-green with a slaty overlay, similar to Helleborus 'Wester Flisk'. The clumps are topped with stalks of whitish-green flowers, beginning in early winter and continuing through early spring. The seedlings will feature nice reddish markings on the flower stem and in the leaf axils...simply superb!
