As sweet as the name implies, 'Cherry Blossom' is a mixed strain of exceptionally vigorous, soft pink picotee hellebores with very large 3" flowers. Some have an anemone center and most have a red starburst in the center. The flowers are downward facing like most hellebores, but the front and backs of the petals are marked with varying degrees of bright red veining and picotee edges. Hellebores are the harbingers of spring, blooming for six weeks or more beginning in late winter. This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed.

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.
