Helleborus Niger

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



A pristine white Hellebore, treasured for its wide-petalled winter blooms.

Helleborus ‘Niger’ flowers between January and March, illuminating garden spaces on some of the darkest days. Deeply cut, leathery foliage provides year-round interest towards the front of a woodland border.

Sturdy stems, up to 30cm tall, hold the crisp white flowers, blushed pink on the reverse, with a cluster of fine golden stamens.

Prefers humus-rich soil which remains moist and is well drained, in a partly shaded spot.

Cut the leaves back to their base in winter when you notice buds emerge. This helps to prevent disease and allows the blooms to shine in the border.
