This plant has appeared in my garden, can anyone identify it for me?
PEAK DISTRICT Derbyshire
It’s a hellebore.
Maybe a cultivated variety or maybe the wild version, Helleborus foetidus.
Either way, a nice free gift.
Apophthegm - a big word for a small thought.
west central Scotland
We've had quite a few threads with people getting some hellebore presents recently
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
Helleborus argutifolius… [argutifolius = sharp toothed leaves]...
...seeds around a lot...quite architectural with yellow/green flower spikes... dead head them if you don't want the future seeding...
Thank you that’s great.
