Helleborus foetidus (Ranunculaceae)
(hell-e-BOR-us FET-i-dus)
Bearsfoot Hellebore

This easy-to-grow, evergreen perennial provides masses of unusual lime-green flowers, held above the foliage, that remain for months in winter. Long, palmate, serrated leaves give plants a tropical appearance; a nice addition to the winter garden. Recommended for dry shade, Bearsfoot grows 2-3' with leaves larger than your hand. A great texture in the woodland garden and reliably deer-resistant.
