    Yet another plant that is totally unfamiliar to me.


  2. I’m not familiar with this flower, but it’s nice to see one. All I see is ice outside today!

    A lovely brave plant , flowering when little else does. The flowers last for ever too.

    Are you going to let us in on the plant’s name. Does it have foetida in its name?

    • Cathy says:

      If you look at the tags at the end of the post or hover your mouse over the picture you will see that it is Helleborus foetidus – so you guessed correctly 🙂

    Helleborus foetidus? I’ve never grown it – is the smell really bad?

    • Cathy says:

      I had to google it to check about the smell – because in the garden it doesn’t! Apparently the leaves smell if they are crushed – so I shan’t be crushing them (or perhaps I should, just to test the theory)

  6. A stink because it smells? Upsetting the applecart because it’s not being an apple? Either way, good for it.

    • Cathy says:

      I had to giggle at the applecart scenario! It’s common name is ‘stinking hellebore’, but the leaves only smell if they are crushed…

    It’s a beautiful flower. We have several different varieties of helleborus & they help make it seem like winter doesn’t last quite as long!
