Stinking hellebore introduces a touch of colour!

Stinking hellebore? Yes, that's another name for the Helleborus foetidus. It's named after the smell released by the flowers if they're crushed. The greenish flowers bloom in winter, from December until spring. Great for some extra colour in the garden or in a flowerpot on the garden table. Put the plant in loose, fertile soil, perhaps with some lime. A shaded or semi-shaded spot is fine. The Helleborus foetidus will grow to approximately 50 cm tall and is slightly toxic.

Planting+
Stinking hellebore can be planted in the ground immediately after receipt. Improve garden soil with compost and mix in a little lime. Dig a sufficiently large plant hole and loosen the soil. Plant the Helleborus foetidus at the correct depth. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level (do not plant it too deeply). Fill the plant hole with soil, press down firmly and water immediately after planting. Choose a sheltered spot in half shade or even full shade for the stinking helebore.
Care+
Give extra water to Helleborus foetidus during dry summers. If the roots are dried out during summer, it is possible that the flower buds are unable to develop properly for next spring. Only cut unsightly or old leaves away from the stinking hellebore after it has flowered. In soil that is too moist, the leaves may suffer from black spots.
Specifics+
Stinking helleborus (Helleborus foetidus) has large, bowl-shaped flowers. They have a beautiful green colour and often have a red edge. Through cultivation, this red edge has been made a little deeper and wider, making them very attractive indeed. This helleborus flowers as early as January and is also suitable for an outside pot. When bruised, the flowers and leaves give off a smell that is not to everyone's taste. The plant does however have a very attractive look: it has beautiful slender leaves and, of course, flowers that may bloom very early in spring. For the bees that have only just woken up, this is a very important source of nectar. Helleborus foetida is a perennial plant that is part of the turban buttercup family (Ranuculaceae), originating from Southern and Central Europe.
