Description

Dark-flowered Hellebores are prized for their enigmatic blooms that make an alluring display in early spring. Hellebore 'Double Black' is one of the darkest you’ll find, with layer upon layer of maroon-black petals which contrast beautifully with its apple-white stamens.

Hellebores are perfect for filling those dark, shaded corners of the garden, where they create excellent ground cover with their leathery, evergreen foliage. Although, you may feel that this one is so special it deserves a prime position in your winter patio containers! Height and spread: 45cm (18").

How to Grow
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.
More Info
Water regularly until established. 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: Hellebore sap may irritate the skin and eyes. All parts are harmful if eaten.
