Like a diamond in the rough, this helleborus shines in early spring with its dramatic slate purple to near-black, single blossoms measuring about 2-2+" across.  After setting seed, the petals turn a unique shade of slate green, continuing the interest long after the plants have finished blooming.  The flowers are downward facing like most helleborus. The new foliage of this deep purple-black flowering selection is purple when it emerges in early spring before it matures into a lovely shade of green.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Hellebores are enjoyable to grow because they are low-maintenance and disease/pest-free. Simply trim back last year's foliage in the spring. They can adapt to almost any growing conditions. Though they prefer rich, moist, organic soil, they will also grow in sandy or clay soil. They can even tolerate short periods of drought. The soil pH can range anywhere from slightly acidic to slightly alkaline. Hellebores are shade plants that need to be protected from the hot afternoon sun. They will grow in full shade under large deciduous trees as long as they receive full sun from winter to spring before the trees get their leaves. To increase the number of hellebores in your garden, mulch them heavily in the fall. The new seedlings will grow in this mulch come spring and can then be transplanted elsewhere in the garden.
