In forum: Identify a plant

Hi Terri, some helpful replies from our followers on social:

"Hellebore (foetidus??)"
"Hellebores Foetidus, commonly known as the stinking hellebore because the flowers are a bit pongy, but it’s a great plant in a large group, semi shade"
"Also seeds freely so if you like it and keep flower heads on you’ll have lots more"
"Helleborus foetidus, the stinking hellebore"
"It looks like a stinking hellebore. It will have greenish -white flowers in Spring"

Hope that helps?

Helleborus foetidus. The stinking hellebore. Quite ornamental, though.

Certainly looks like the leaves but difficult to tell till it comes into flower. I looked for mine to send you a photo but can't find it in all the greenery at the moment. Mine grows in shade border but the soil is moist / loamy and never really dries out totally. See RHS for growing info. https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/details?plantid=3063
and here https://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/helleborus-foetidus. Hope that helps.

Helleborus foetidus?

Question from Steve

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi, moved to a new house, found this planted in full shade, north aspect PH5.5, heavy but baked clay in Essex. It looks sick, I've cut out lots of black mushy stems and dead leaves.

It is Helleborus foetidus or stinking hellebore, it should be blooming with a light green flower pretty soon.

Hi, Claire,
Helleborus foetidus tends to get floppy, especially in very shady conditions - they tend to prefer dappled shade and can even tolerate sun. It is doubtful the stems will root. The best way to propagate is with seed, but when the seed is ripe. It doesn't sound like the seed on your shoots had the chance to ripen so it is unlikely they will germinate. I don't think you will need to cut it back in future, but perhaps relocate to where it gets more light.

helleborus foetidus

Question from Claire Hodges

In forum: Helleborus foetidus

I've just been inspecting my Helleborus Foetidus and accidentally snapped off 2 main stems. It was getting a bit straggly (about 3 yrs old), and though I was holding the stems gently it seemed that the thick stems (nearly an inch diameter) were having trouble supporting their own weight. Some new growth is already showing at the base so the plant will continue to grow I hope, but can i plant out the small shoots showing on the main stem that has broken off?
Also, can I use the seeds that are attached to this main stem if I let them dry out (the pods are still closed)?
Should I have kept the plant's growth more in check over the last couple of years?
Many thanks
Claire

Mystery plant

Message from Kathy C

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi, Julie,
This is definitely a Hellebore and I am fairly certain it is Helleborus foetidus or a cultivar of it - a lovely, midwinter to mid-spring bloomer with bell-shaped, pale green flowers (may be a different colour if it is a cultivar). Likes neutral to alkaline soil in partial or dappled shade. Will tolerate clay pretty well.
It is on the site:Hellborus foetidus

Mystery plant

Comment from Kathy C

In forum: General

Hi, AC
If you are referring to the plant in the middle, with the dark green, linear, serrated leaves and the pale green flowers, then I am pretty certain your plant is a Helleborus foetidus (Stinking hellebore or Bear's foot hellebore).
