We love seeing this False Hellebore when we are hiking up to Marmot Pass or Mt Townsend in the Olympics.  Usually growing in dappled light or partly sunny spots where there is ample moisture and rich soil, the big wide pleated leaves are perfect with the drooping plume-like green flowers.  Fertilize them well when in growth to shorten the time to maturity.  Too deep of shade inhibits bloom but you still get the great leaves.  Deer proof.  At least here.
