H. foetidus 'Ruth' is a new seed-strain from England's Hellebore Guru, Will McLewin, named after the mother of Will's companion, Helen. This form of H. foetidus is known for its nice, tight, compact habit and dark-green, almost black foliage when well grown. The evergreen foliage gives rise to stalks of green flowers in late fall or winter. Our supply is limited, so if you are interested in being the first in your neighborhood to secure this new gem... don't wait!
