Veratrum nigrum

Common name black false hellebore
Family melanthiaceae
Life cycle perennial

A genus that's new to our garden. A few years ago, I tried both nigrum and album from seed. It seemed like they were going to grow, but then they never developed. Strike one. This year I'm trying nigrum again...

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
