I wrote recently that I was not too keen on fashionably dark hellebores as they tend to make a hole in the border. This one was given to me by a friend, so naturally I planted it and was grateful. It's darker than it looks in the picture.

Knowing my source, I think this was probably grown by RD Plants and rejected as not being good enough to name. Something has been eating it. The green leaf is arum, not hellebore.
