Cor­si­can helle­bores

Amateur Gardening - - A Gardener’s Miscellany -

Helle­borus arguti­folius is known as the Cor­si­can helle­bore be­cause it is na­tive to Cor­sica (and Sar­dinia). It is also called the holly-leaved helle­bore as its leaves are com­prised of spiny edges (in Latin nam­ing, arguti­folius means ‘with sharp-toothed leaves’). Its late win­ter and early spring flow­ers are bowl-shaped – and bright green.
