Helleborus foetidus "Wester flisk"


Helleborus foetidus "Wester flisk" (Helleborus argutifolius (Corsican hellebore))

This variety is so named because it was discovered in old gardens in Wester Flisk, Firth of Tay, Scotland. Being evergreen, the beautiful foliage remains all year on dark red stems, while the flowers give a wonderful display from midwinter through to early spring. Wester flisk is a plant that certainly earns its keep in the smaller garden.

Wow.! A very unique looking hellebore. I would have guessed it to be euphorbia.
I'm sure it's very rarely seen in cultivation. I'd love to have one.!

This pic makes the plant I found last month, and which you so kindly gave me info on, seem much more attractive, many thanks!
