    Purple-tinted, creamy-green, bowl-shaped flowers from February to April and pinkish-purple leaves. These beautiful hellebores look great planted in groups of three towards the front of a mixed border in sun or partial shade. One of the most eye-catching varieties of hellebore, for maximum results they require a neutral to alkaline soil.

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