Product description

  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: January to April

    A new hybrid form (Helleborus niger x Helleborus foetidus) that is famed for its incredibly long flowering period - often from early winter to spring. It is pretty too, with nodding pink-flushed green flowers that top slender stems. Great for the woodland floor, or underplanting shrubs and trees in partially shaded borders.

  • Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould, compost or manure to the planting hole. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant and provide a top-dressing of general fertiliser each spring.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
