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.
Ashwood Garden Hybrids are a strain of Helleborus x hybridus, and are regarded as some of the best hellebore hybrids available. There are many cultivars to choose from – all are healthy and robust plants, and produce flowers in a variety of colours and forms.
Helleborus 'Single Primrose Shades' bears pretty yellow single flowers. Like all hellebores, Helleborus 'Single Primrose Shades' dislike being moved once established, so should not be divided. Given the right conditions, it will self-seed quite sufficiently to provide replacements.
