Helleborus x hybridus ‘Early Purple Group’

Plant details

A winter-flowering staple in the cottage garden, hellebores produce large clusters of saucer-shaped flowers with white, pink, green, mauve or smoky purple flowers. The large leathery, evergreen leaves persist throughout the year but should be cut back in the spring when flowers and new foliage emerge. Plants hybridise and self-seed freely.

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Early Purple Group’ has red-tinged foliage and bears large, cup-shaped, nodding, plum-purple flowers with contrasting yellow stamens.

I have this hellebore growing under a large pine tree it lasts for ages plus the changes of colour as in all Hellenistic just adds to the attractiveness.
