Corsican Hellebore (Helleborus argutifolius)

10.00

Corsican hellebore, also known as holly-leaved hellebore, is a crowd favourite as it blooms in late winter, when most plants are still dormant. It is very hardy once established, and is just fine with frost and low light- although it prefers full sun. Like other hellebores, it is a perennial and will last 4-5 years before it is best replaced- which will be relatively easy for you, as if you don’t deadhead it, the plant will self seed readily.

Corsican hellebores look stunning in a line as a part of an English flower garden. Because of their dark/lime green colours, they are striking beside flax and NZ natives (especially pseudopanax). I love putting them along pathways in native gardens, to keep the wandering dew and weed seeds at bay.
