Helleborus Argutifolius

Blossom period
January through March
Corsica, Sardinia

Helleborus argutifolius, also known as Corsican hellebore, is a Mediterranean species well-suited to hot, dry climates, perfect for bringing light to the edge of undergrowth. The flowers range in colour from pistachio green to greenish creamy-white. The fact that they are tilted downwards, allowing water to slide off like an umbrella, is to protect the heart of the flower, which could otherwise rot.
