Helleborus × ericsmithii ‘Pink Beauty’


Hybrid Christmas Rose

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.256.760


An interesting hybrid variety of Hellebore, selected in Europe, a.k.a. Helleborus × nigristern. This forms a low evergreen clump of dark-green leaves mottled with silver. In late winter and early spring stems rise taller, bearing big cup-shaped blooms of soft-pink kissed with ivory green. Prune off any ugly leaves in spring, otherwise just leave this alone. Plants can only be increased true-to-form by careful division after blooming, best done as seldom as possible since this resents being disturbed. A hybrid of H. niger × H. × sternii. Not yet widely tested, possibly hardy to Zone 5 or colder. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten/Skin irritant.
