When does this Helleborus flower?
The Helleborus Foetidus already starts flowering in December. Its attractive flowers stay beautiful into March. 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 these winter flowering plants stay beautifully green during the winter. They are even at their beautiful best during that time!
