Many years ago we were lucky to find a seedling hellebore in our garden with lime green flowers. We moved the plant to an area of the garden that is not close to neighboring hellebores and allowed it to develop into a mature specimen. It has produced seedlings with pale green flowers, many with a light fragrance. This has made us wonder if the mother plant was not the result of a cross between H. orientalis and H. odorus. We have lifted the seedlings which we all-too-literally call Helleborus x hybridus 'Green Flower Strain.' Because these are seedlings, the color of the flowers and the fragrance will be variable. All are lovely.
