Hellebore niger

Posted: 29/01/2016 at 19:20

I have a strain of white orientalis that flowers very early every year Verdun. I bought it in flower from a wayside stall years ago, in the autumn. It flowers any old time and has crossed with others which have also become disorientated in flowering time. Not too keen on summer flowering hellebores, doesn't seem right. But as long as I have plenty now I'll put up with it (or cut the flowers off if it really offends)

Remembering, that's where it all goes to pot

Not easy here. 

I've rarely kept one more than 2, maybe 3, years and have only had one re-flowering.

My final try is just a few leaves this year.  

No more, the other species satisfy my hellebore needs

argutifolius is aka holly leaved hellebore and the leaves are quite holly like (with a little imagination)

I'll have a 2nd look Dove, the leaves looked like foetidus to me, corsicus/argutifolius broader and jagged edges.

We'll get a 3rd opinion soon

Hi Alan, welcome to the forum

You've got a hellebore there, Helleborus foetidus, the native one. Nice. What else have you found?

Euphorbia martinii

I think that's it Dove, as with a lot of other plants  (and drugs)

Denno, talking to plants is perfectly normal behaviour

Damage from euphorbia sap isn't inevitable. I've often had it on my skin and only been damaged once.

They don't like being transplanted but if you gently tip the contents from the pot and plant them without disturbing the roots they'll be quite happy
