Helleborus viridis


Green Hellebore

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.256.180


Nodding saucer-shaped flowers appear in early to mid spring, in a true deep-green shade with a powdery finish. Plants are briefly deciduous in winter, springing out of the ground during early mild spells and producing fairly coarse, divided green leaves. Prefers partial to full shade conditions and tolerates heavy clay soils well. This is a fairly slow-growing species and not really as showy as the flashy modern hybrids, but it offers a sort of classical unspoiled elegance. This species does not have a noticeable scent, pleasant or otherwise. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten/Skin irritant.
