Helleborus argutifolius ‘Silver Lace’
“Corsican Hellebore”

Helleborus argutifolius ‘Silver Lace’ “Corsican Hellebore” Helleborus argutifolius ‘Silver Lace’ “Corsican Hellebore”

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.
