Helleborus



Description

Buttercup-type dangling flowers in rose, purple and white emerge in late winter and spring, one of the first flowers to come up in cool weather and what a beautiful harbinger they are; ideal for woodland gardens and shady slopes. Oriental Hellebore features showy nodding rose cup-shaped flowers at the ends of the stems from late winter to early spring. Its glossy oval compound leaves remain bluish-green in color throughout the year. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
