This hellebore bloomed about jan 20th after a mild winter here in zone 5b/6a. It started faint green went pure white and still has blooms that are a greenish hue but fully open and double. The leaves are large, bright green and remained green throughout the winter. The flowers drape downward under the leaves and are evident all the same.
