A plant that should be more widely grown, this purple-coloured hellebore flowers in early spring, usually before the new leaves emerge. The blooms can begin to open as early as mid-December. Found wild in eastern Europe, it grows in grassy alpine meadows. In the garden, it enjoys more sun than other hellebores, but will do well in dappled shade such as under shrubs or trees.

I love this plant - but would it grow in a pot? I've only ever really seen them in gardens and woodland.
i have many hellebore plants as they keep re seeding. do I cut them back after flowering down to the base ? I have also pricked out the seeds and grown them on .
Where can I purchase Hellebores Purpurascens ? I have a small garden, can anyone recommend other plants that work well with this plant ?
