Leathery, lobed leaves cast in silver light up the shade on this tough evergreen perennial. ‘Silver Lace’ is an upstanding & popular Hellebore, making a large clump of striking palmed leaves that provide many textural & contrast possibilities to play with. One of the best perennials for dry shade, they can survive under Oak trees once established with no summer water, & additionally, deer don’t eat them! 2-3’ tall & eventually spanning 4’ wide, cup shaped chartreuse flowers appear in winter & their calyxes persist for months. Long lived, & hard to kill, they like rich soil & will grow faster if given average water. Bait for snails & slugs, which are practically the only thing that can make these enduring plants look worse for wear.
