  1. I am not sure if this is Helleborus odorus odorus or H.o.cyclophyllus Posted 5 years ago
  2. Hellebores are extremely popular garden flowers out here - it's nice to see one in it's natural habitat. Posted 5 years ago

Helleborus cyclophyllus is a flowering perennial native to Albania, Greece, and Bulgaria, and environs. It is similar in appearance to other hellebores found in the Balkan region. It is acaulescent, meaning it lacks a stem with leaves, instead sending up a leafless flower stalk. The green leaves are palmate and basal, spreading at the ground. The flowers are green to yellow-green and 2 to 3 inches in diameter.
