Helleborus cyclophyllus is a flowering perennial plant in the family Ranunculaceae.[3] It is native to Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, and Yugoslavia.[2] It is similar in appearance to other hellebores found in the Balkan region. It is acaulescent, meaning it lacks a stem with leaves, instead sending up a leafless flower stalk. The green leaves are palmate and basal, spreading at the ground. The flowers are green to yellow-green and 2 to 3 inches in diameter.
