And these are the hints that were given:

- Can easily be used as a pun.
- Everyone knows of it but when you google its name it doesn't really come up.

Riddle me this!

If that's not right, it should be.

Mmmm Hellebore...that might just be it! The other idea is that it's a "mum".

so we want to know, is the above explanation correct?

There are so many flower names that can be puns...the puzzle is clue #2. Do you mean that when you type in the flower name it doesn't come up as a flower? Because I cant think of any off hand that don't come up. One of the most obvious is tulip, but of course that googles just fine, as does phlox, anemone, cereus, sedum (I actually thought at one time that a pun on sedum would be a good name for a nursery business)...and everything else I come up with.
