Its stout stems, deep green, leathery leaves and large heads of apple green flowers mark it apart from all other hellebores With bowl shaped, nodding flowers the colour of 'Granny Smith' apples 4 to 5cm (2in) wide, borne in large open clusters.

The stout stems bear leaves composed of three spiny-toothed dark green leaflets. This popular, evergreen makes an architectural statement in the middle of a mixed or shrub border. It is an easy plant to grow in sun or shade in most soils and excellent for massing under trees, the handsome foliage is a long-lasting source of interest after the flowers have passed.

Huacatay (Tagetes minuta) — Minty Herb from Peru — also called Peruvian Black Mint – Mystical Magical Herbs. I planted the huacatay seeds in pots (using regular potting soil) around the beginning of April of this year. These were seeds collected from last year’s crop.

It’s mid-October now, and the huacatay plants have started to bloom. Their tiny white flowers attract bees and small flying insects. Pluck a few leaves and chew on them, and your tongue is greeted with a robust, mint-like flavor.
