I rescued this plant as a tiny seedling with just 2-3 little leaves this spring from the patio of a friend’s new townhouse. At the time I thought it was a hellebore seedling, but over the summer it has grown quite a bit and now I’m not sure what it is.
New growth leaves emerge bright lime green with heavy silver veining and reddish stems. As they age the leaves darken and the veining and stems fade somewhat. The basal plant structure looks similar to other young hellebores I have.
