This seed strain from Ernie and Marietta O'Byrne has pewter blue leaves and red stems. The creamy green flowers sport burgundy edges and bloom in late winter. The textural, leathery, deeply cut foliage is evergreen providing excellent foliage 12 months of the year. Plants do not smell despite the common name unless you mince up the foliage and what gardener would want to put their hellebore in the Cuisinart! Full to part sun. Slightly shorter and more silver than 'Wester Flisk'. Deer resistant.
