|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|False Hellebore is in the Lily family.|
The leaves of the Hellebore are large and coarse (not shown) and the plant can grow up to six feet tall. Flowers are plentiful and can range in colour from yellowish to green. June and July is when they normally flower in Alberta. If we hare having a cool summer, blooming may continue into early August.
The leaves, root and blooms are poisonous since they contain several alkaloids. Native have used this plant medicinally but it's not recommended unless you are familiar with it's growth.
I found this plant in Waterton Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I have been under the weather lately so I'm really behind on my critiques. I love this unique looking flowering plant. I have never seen or even heard of it, but must admit it is quite lovely with it's pretty green flowers and buds. Nicely focused allowing us to view it in excellent detail. Wonderful exposure considering the full light you had to deal with. I like the clean dark BG.
