Helleborus x sternii
A hybrid between H. lividus and H. argutifolius. We grew ours from seed, so it may be a slightly different hybrid. So far so good on the hardiness, which should be marginal in our zone, although the leaves can get tattered through winter, as shown in the photo below. It took four years for our plant to get around to flowering, and when it did, the less than ornamental leaves didn't do the best job of complementing the greenish flowers. But I'm still glad to have this plant around.
||pale green (spring)
|Not the way the leaves are supposed to look in spring, but just ignore presuppositions and admire the color effects! |
|Looking fresh in early May 2007 |
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
