Plant Family / Helleborus - Hellebores
Helleborus (Hellebores) is a genus of most attractive perennials with very long-lasting (6 to 8 weeks) flowers in winter or very early spring. Easy to grow, Hellebores add a nice texture to a woodland or shady border. Fairly deer and rabbit resistant, they are also frost-resistant, shade tolerant and many are evergreen.
Exceptionally vigorous, Hellebore Winter Jewels 'Golden Lotus' (Helleborus) features large (2-3 in. wide, 5-8 cm), fully double, fluffy, sunny yellow blossoms, rich of 15-20 petals, some with burgundy red picotee edges and others with delicate streaks underside
Cheerful and vigorous, Hellebore Winter Jewels 'Golden Sunrise' (Helleborus) features large (2-3 in. wide, 5-8 cm), single, saucer-shaped, canary-yellow blossoms, some with a red picotee edge or a showy red starburst center. The flowers are downward facing, like most hellebores, but the back of their petals is handsomely marked with colorful red veining.
Showy and long-lasting, Hellebore Winter Jewels 'Harlequin Gem' (Helleborus) features double, saucer-shaped blossoms in a rich array of colors. The large purple-red flowers may be streaked with red, green or yellow on the inside while the outside is black or purple.
Incredibly floriferous, Helleborus x ballardiae 'Candy Love' (Hellebore) features large, saucer-shaped, flowers, 3.5 in. wide (8 cm), which open to pale apricot, gradually darkening to pink, then misty purple with red and pink tints, creating attractive combinations of pastel shades.

Born from pink buds, Helleborus x ballardiae 'HGC Maestro' (Hellebore) features saucer-shaped, white blossoms, up to 2 in. across (5 cm), which delicately mature to dusky pink, creating attractive combinations of creamy-white and pink shades.
