DescriptionH. foetidus is an evergreen perennial to 60cm with erect stems, and leaves palmately divided leaves narrow dark green leaflets. Nodding, usually purple-edged, pale green flowers to 2cm in width are borne in large open clusters from late winter

Care: Not a huge amount of care needed. I cut away the old leaves early in the year to allow space for the new leaves to sprout.
