Black Hellebore?  by louannwarren

Black Hellebore?

At least that’s what my “Garden Answers” app said. The center of the flower doesn’t look like the example, so please name this flower, if you know what it really is.
Pretty shot and such an interesting looking flower.

It is a hellebore and they come in lots of shades from whites, cream, pink, burgundy, though never a real black. Also known as the Lenten Rose.

I can't really help you with the identification but it seems Catherine has a definitive answer for you. Pretty flower!

It is beautiful. I love 365, there is always someone who can help you identify flowers.

Definitely a hellebore but as to the black part not certain about that. I will have to check the ones I have to see if they have that dark center! Great shot!

Well, I've never heard of or seen a hellebore, so once again 365 has broadened my horizons. Nice shot!

I don’t trust the “garden answers “app. There have been so many mistakes that I finally deleted mine. I hope you have better luck with your app.

@gardenfolk I have learned that if the photo isn’t spot on, I go to previous answers. If they are not the same I don’t use that answer. But a lot of the time they have given me a correct answer.
