Dark And Handsome Hellebore

Description
With petals ranging in color from dramatic tuxedo black to deep, rich purple, it's no wonder this perennial is part of the Helleborus Wedding Party series. It's perfect for bouquets and boutonnieres in weddings from early to mid-spring, since that's when the 2.5-3" flower heads bloom. Their leaves—glossy green and leathery, divided into 7-9 toothed leaflets—are evergreen in warmer climates, and deer will keep away. It thrives in well-drained clay or sandy soil that retains moisture, and is ideal for rock, shade, and woodland gardens, growing from 18-24" tall. It prefers keeping out of the sun, so plant in partial to full shade, where it will stand up to dry weather. Helleborus 'Dark and Handsome'

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible. Large orders may be shipped in more than one package.

Bare-root perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and success in your garden. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window.
