    I visited the south garden March 4 and was captivated by sweet smelling hellebores. I thought they were labeled stinking hellebores, but the online descriptions of the scent are definitely nasty. So what is the name of these lovely scented hellebores?

    Extremely helpful articles. The information on the Helleborus is very timely. I have been looking at the Hellebore Cultivar and wanting to get that and the Christmas Rose but didn’t know what they were. I will be adding those to my garden. Thank you for this information.
