When does the Helleborus flower?
The Helleborus Argutifolius starts coming into bloom in around February and it flowers through to about April. Because the Helleborus flowers in the Winter and in early spring, it is a most attractive plant for bees that are waking from their winter sleep. It is truly a bee attracting plant! The Helleborus belongs to the perennials. This is remarkable, because unlike most perennials, this winter flowering plant stays beautifully green in the winter. They are even at their beautiful best during that time!
