Another saucy double, this one in luscious cherry & orchid shades! Very decadent. ‘Berry Swirl’ bears 3” blooms packed with petals that are colorful from both below & above (which is helpful, since the flowers are nodding, of course.) Occasionally white flowered individuals with red-purple borders may appear in the mix. Reaches 20" x 24" at maturity. Long lived & hardy, Hellebores are a mainstay of the shade garden & provide ornament & interest through the Winter months & beyond! Tolerant of clay, drought (once established,) deer & poor soil, plus they’re really lovely plants. Part of the Winter Jewels series, ‘Berry Swirl’ was bred by Ernie & Marietta O’Byrne of Eugene Oregon, who painstakingly hand select & pollinate their unique strains to ensure consistency, quality & vigor.
