Helleborus foetidus, commonly called stinking hellebore, is an evergreen perennial that typically grows to 24” tall and is noted for its deeply divided dark green foliage and late winter to early spring bloom. Clusters of drooping, bell-shaped, greenish-white flowers  subtended by pale green bracts bloom at the tips of leafy stems commencing in February. Leaf shape gives rise to an additional common name of bear’s foot. Leaves, stems and roots are poisonous. Although foliage is evergreen, it may become scorched and tattered in extremely harsh winters, particularly if not insulated by snow cover.
