Description

I'm not sure what the 6 things in the middle of the flower are. I looked it up and apparently these flowers are poisonous.

Helleborus foetidus - Stinkend nieskruid | Stinking hellebore | Hellébore fétide | Stinkende Nieswurz

Talking about Helleborus, we always tend to think about Helleborus niger, the Christmas Rose, or about those dark-red coloured Helleborus orientalis.

But, in the Ardens, in the Southern part of Belgium, you can find two native members of the genus Helleborus: there is the rather common Stinking Hellebore (Helleborus foetidus), and the much rarer Green Hellebore (Helleborus viridis).

In contrast with the well-known garden-varieties of H. niger and H. orientalis, our native Hellebores have less obvious green flowers.

It is found wild in many parts of England, especially on limestone soil.
