Helleborous Orientalis | Jacob

Helleborous niger | Jacob

Regular price $15.00

 Helleborous niger Jacob has beautiful stunning  single white flowers that are approximately 8cm in diameter with a crown of showy golden stamens.  The lovely thing about this variety is that the flowers as they mature turn a rosey pink colour in cooler temperatures and a soft green in warmer climates.  The flowers are held on attractive dark stems and also have been bred to turn outwards so you can see their beautiful faces.  An early flowerer, the pristine white flowers will lighten up any shady corner of the garden.  This variety performs best in part to full shade in most soils as long as the ground does not become to dry - we mulch ours to help retain moisture.

Easy to grow, it looks lovely in a woodland garden setting as an understory to trees and is fabulous for naturalising.  Plant in groups for a spectacular effect.

Hellebores make great cut flowers, but be sure to cut and immediately plunge their stems into boiling water to seal them to get a few days out of them in a vase, or alternatively float them in a  decorative bowl of water. 

 We also have Helleborus Jasper which is a semi-double
