Hellebore 'Black Swan'

Helleborus × hybridus

Hardy Perennial

  • T&M Exclusive
  • Grow the most prestigious Christmas Rose in your garden
Winter-flowering hellebores are true garden gems, producing luxuriant blooms when little else is in growth, let alone flower! Fresh from our unique hellebore breeding programme we have hit on the perfect form and habit with Hellebore 'Black Swan'. The sumptuously dark velvety petals, starkly contrasted by pure white stamens, are a vast improvement on older black-flowered hellebore plants. Where older types tend to face their blooms to the soil below, 'Black Swan' holds its jet-black blooms up for all to see. This classy performer deserves a place in every garden as the star attraction through winter. Height and spread: 60cm (2').

Ideal For:
patio, cottage gardens, low maintenance garden, cut flower garden, woodland garden
Flowering Period:
February, March, April
Position:
sun or semi shade, dappled shade

Pot up hellebore plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. When plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant hellebores in neutral or alkaline soil, in dappled shade. Hellebores prefer a moist, humus rich, fertile soil that does not dry out in summer or sit waterlogged in winter. When growing hellebores on heavy clay or free draining gravel soils, add plenty of well rotted leaf mould or other organic matter to the soil prior to planting.
Mulch hellebores with well rotted manure or garden compost each spring. Hellebores resent disturbance after planting and may take some time to re-establish. However when clumps become overcrowded, lifting and dividing of hellebores should be undertaken immediately after flowering.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.

  1. Superb condition

    By 13-07-2016

    Just a short note to say an order for three Hellebores arrived last week. I have never received plants in such superb condition and so perfectly packaged. I have had a number of disappointments when ordering through the post so I though my thanks ought to be sent to you.
