Helleborus lividus x niger

Hellebores are all excellent garden plants, ranging from the small Christmas rose (H. niger) up to some substantial herbaceous perennials, and flowering from mid winter (a highly prized virtue) through spring. Even after the flowers are over, many of them have persistent lime green calyces, which will happily pass for flowers. The tough, leathery leaves persist all year, but it is a good idea to cut them back just before the new ones emerge, so that their beauty can be enjoyed without distraction. Add humus to the soil in autumn.

Helleborus lividus x niger is a hybrid of the well-known Christmas rose, and it has similar large, white flowers, but held on firm stems above the foliage, so much more visible. I looks great for many weeks, and always catches the eye in our garden. One of the best of a genus with many excellent plants.
