This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: any moist, neutral to alkaline soil, including heavy soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: January to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    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
