Helleborus niger ‘HGC Jacob’

Gold Collection Hellebore

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.256.960

This Gold Collection® Hellebore is gorgeous both in leaf and flower, flowering the first year. It forms a low mound of leathery evergreen green leaves. Large, outfacing, slightly fragrant, single, pure white flowers appear earlier than most, mid November through January. Perfect choice for displaying with Christmas poinsettias and cactus. Flowers gradually age to a light green and in cooler temperatures are tinted pink. Avoid any pruning other than to remove dead or blemished leaves in spring. Mulch in order to maintain moisture in summer. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten/Skin irritant. USPP#17799: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
