Helleborus x ballardiae HGC Maestro (Hellebore)

Hellebore HGC Maestro, Helleborus × ballardiae 'Coseh 890'


Helleborus x ballardiae HGC Maestro (Hellebore) is a semi-evergreen, clump-forming perennial boasting saucer-shaped, white blossoms, up to 2 in. across (5 cm), that delicately mature to dusky pink, creating attractive combinations of creamy-white and pink shades. Thanks to a high bud count, Maestro blooms heavily for weeks from late winter to early spring. Outward facing, the flowers rise on red stems above the leathery, glossy, silver-veined foliage. Showy and long-lasting, this vigorous and floriferous Hellebore is ideal to brighten the shade garden!

  • Grows in a bushy, upright clump, up to 12-15 in. tall (30-37 cm) and 20-24 in. across (50-60 cm).
  • Performs best in part shade in fertile, humus-rich, moist, neutral to alkaline, well-drained soils. Can tolerate some sun. Avoid soils prone to drying out or staying wet.
  • Select a sheltered site to protect your hellebores from cold winter winds.
  • Easy to grow, this plant is a welcomed addition to shady borders, city gardens, under trees or large shrubs, woodland gardens, or cottage gardens. Plant in groups for the best visual impact.
  • Hellebore flowers provide valuable nectar for early pollinators. Hellebore is not generally a plant that deer or other animals seek out to eat, but if other food sources are scarce, they may come along and make a meal out of your Hellebore.
  • No serious pest or disease issues. Keep an eye out for aphids, snails, hellebore leaf spot, and hellebore black death.
  • Remove faded or damaged foliage as the flowers appear.
  • Propagate by seed or by division in autumn.
  • Ingestion may cause severe discomfort, skin irritant. Wear gloves and other protective equipment when handling.
