Helleborus - Hellebores

Helleborus is a fabulous genus of Spring flowering garden plants, many are natural tough European woodlanders. Hellebores are like many members of Ranunculaceae, they have a huge range of flower colours and forms and hybridise freely. Other members of this family, like Clematis, Anemone and Delphinium, all show the same plasticity of flower form and colour. Helleborus are often very tolerant of dry shade conditions and associate beautifully with snowdrops, Erythronium, Primula, Pulmonaria and Tiarella. The genus Helleborus grows in two forms, those forming stems such as Helleborus foetidus and argutifolius and those growing from a rootstock with flowering or leaf stems. Helleborus foetidus is amongst the most tolerant of very dry soils thriving on dry road cuttings with things such as juniper.

Harmful if eaten and may irritate the skin.

{Description}
Sweet Cicely, fully deciduous. In Spring it produces beautiful soft, hairy, pale green leaves, and then later small heads of cow parsley type flowers. Brushing past it releases the sweet aniseed scent, and it's often used in the preparation of stewed fruit to reduce the amount of sugar needed. A must for the herb or wild garden.
{Cultivation}
Grows well in dry shade, though best with semi-shade.
