From Marietta O’Byrne’s meticulous breeding program comes this dishy new Hellebore with 4” flowers in tasty shades of peachy-apricot! Seed grown variability, so some will sport dark veining, speckling or picotee edging – all are lovely! To 20”x20” with palm-like leathery evergreen foliage. Flowers in late Winter or earliest Spring, so it’s beautiful combined with the early blooming, baby-blue flowers of perennial “Forget-Me-Not” Myosotis palustris. Like all Hellebores, simple, reliable, CLAY TOLERANT and deer/rabbit resistant. Evergreen in warm Winter zones. Provide rich, well-draining soil and an annual composting for best show. Cut back foliage in early Spring to refresh.
