Helleborus foetidus - Stinkend nieskruid | Stinking hellebore

 

Talking about Helleborus, we always tend to think about Helleborus niger, the Christmas Rose, or about those dark-red coloured Helleborus orientalis.

 

But, in the Ardens, in the Southern part of Belgium, you can find two native members of the genus Helleborus: there is the rather common Stinking Hellebore (Helleborus foetidus), and the much rarer Green Hellebore (Helleborus viridis).

 

In contrast with the well-known garden-varieties of H. niger and H. orientalis, our native Hellebores have less obvious green flowers.
