Double black hellebores are one of the most sought-after colors and they are rare in the trade.  You will love this new vigorous strain of double black hellebores!

Add some dramatic flair to your spring garden with 'Midnight Ruffles'!  Large three inch, velvety black flowers with contrasting light yellow stamens have three times the number of petals than a single hellebore. 

Like the other double flowered hellebores in the WINTER THRILLERS series, they retain their color for up to twelve weeks, long after the flowers are spent.  You'll hardly even notice when the flowers are finished because they just keep looking fresh for so long.  This feature greatly expands their shelf life and season of interest in the landscape.  

This perennial was featured on the Martha Stewart Show in March, 2012! 

Hellebores are the harbingers of spring, blooming for six weeks or more beginning in late winter. They are often flowering during the Christian season of Lent, from which they get their common name, Lenten Rose. This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed.
