Helleborus x ericsmithii

Plant details

Helleborus x ericsmithii produces upright rosettes of attractively mottled mid-green foliage throughout the year. In the second year each stem produces a cluster of showy pale greenish-pink flowers. It enjoys a sunny spot in well-drained soil. Once the plants have shed their seed, remove the spent flower stem to encourage plants to produce new shoots from the base. Helleborus x ericsmithii is more tender than most other hellebores and should be grown in pots in an unheated greenhouse in colder areas. It bears creamy pink blooms, tinged with green, from November to February.
