Helleborus Early Purple


Early Purple Hellebore

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.256.150


(='Atrorubens') One of the more stunning of the Hellebores, this early-blooming selection bears blossoms of a dusky maroon-purple. Plants produce a bushy clump of thick, leathery evergreen leaves. Site these where they will stay for many years, since the plants resent being disturbed. Trimming the old leaves to the ground in late winter will make the show of flowers more easily seen, and just generally tidy up the plants. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten/Skin irritant.
