Our range of Hellebores is rapidly increasing as we approach the winter months and these wonderful hardy perennials come into their own in the garden. Blooming when very little else does, Hellebores are a fantastic addition to you garden where they will happily grow in pots or containers as well as beds and borders. They do their best when grown in partial shade and a fertile, moist, well-drained soil.
There are many different varieties of Hellebore available with the range constantly being increased by enthusiastic breeders and growers who introduce new and exciting varieties every year. One of our favourite new introductions is from the ‘Frostkiss’ series of Hellebores - ‘Illumi Lime’ has vivid green flowers ensuring it stands out from the crowd. The ‘Frostkiss’ series was developed by crossbreeding several types, by doing so the breeders have produced a super strong, frost-resistant hellebore with colourful flowers and magnificent foliage. The marbled pattern on the foliage is an absolute pleasure for the eyes and makes the plant attractive beyond the flowering season. Other popular varieties in this series include:
- Helleborus Frostkiss® ‘Charmer’ – a compact, early flowering variety with huge dark pink coloured flowers with burgundy flecking in the centre.
- Helleborus Frostkiss® ‘Glenda’s Gloss’ – has a taller growth habit and bears white flowers with a pretty magenta colouring on the edges.
- Helleborus Frostkiss® ‘Molly’s White’ – vigorous and well-branched with clear white flowers.
