This is a good link:

Selected Species and Varieties

Helleborus argutifolius - A handsome plant with large, divided, spiny, dark-green leaves. Vigorous, though not fully hardy as it originates from the Mediterranean area (it was once named Helleborus Corsicus). Carries large clusters of pale-green flowers from late winter.

Helleborus foetidus (Stinking hellebore) - Striking, deeply-divided, palm-like leaves hang like dark-green veils below panicles of red-lipped, pale-green flowers borne from late winter. It is native to many parts of Eurasia and Britain.


Helleborus niger (Christmas rose) - White, nodding, cup-shaped flowers appear above divided, dark-green leaves in winter. This species is native to central/eastern Europe.

Helleborus orientalis (Lenten rose) - An Eastern Mediterranean species almost invariably offered in hybrid variety. Similar in habit to Helleborus niger but flowering somewhat later in yellow-green, white, pink or maroon.
