I’m always excited about plant arrivals at the nursery –especially about Hellebores. Looking out the rain streaked window at the new hellebores gives me the urge to carve out a new garden bed. Actually to be accurate it gives me the urge to draw out a new garden bed and then hand the paper to hubby (gardening thug work makes an excellent Christmas present).

Helleborus Jacob

This newest group of Hellebores are almost ethereal and most definitely magical and some of them are coming home with me today to live in that new garden bed!

Hellebores love a moist, humic but well draining soil in part to full shade, many can tolerate full sun though that is not their preferred situation. Place them where you are likely to walk by in the winter so that you may enjoy the stunning display of blooms and foliage in the winter and early spring and guess what? They are deer resistant.Here are a few of our most recent arrivals.

Helleborus Platinum Rose & Helleborus Silver Dollar

Helleborus ‘Silver Dollar’

This beauty has silvery green slender toothed leaves with a silvery burgundy stems. The clusters of outward facing blossoms are a creamy green with dusky mauve and rose undersides. This one is also coming home to be paired with a silvery grass. I will give it a little space though as it has a bit of a skunky perfume. It grows to about 1 foot by 1 foot. Hardy to about Zone 6.

Helleborus ‘Platinum Rose’

This Sturdy specimen has large toothed evergreen leaves in a grey green with silver veining. The leaf stems are a black burgundy and elegantly long. The blossoms are a lovely pink, open to a cream colour and then change to a deep dusky rose. This variety grows about one foot with a spread of about 18 inches and is hardy to about Zone 5.

Helleborus Ice Breaker Prelude & Helleborus Monte Cristo

Helleborus x nigercors ‘Ice Breaker Prelude’

Another Gold Collection Variety with outward facing blooms, this time in soft cream with a lime centre line giving it an almost star like appearance. The blossoms age to green sometimes with a dusky pink overtone in cold weather. It will form a tidy clump to about 18 inches by 18 inches and is hardy to Zone 5.

Helleborus ‘Monte Cristo’

This more demure hellebore has soft sage green evergreen leaves with reddish stems. The blooms begin as clusters of teardrop shaped peachy pink buds and then open to a soft cream with peach undersides. This grows to about 11 inches with a spread of about 2 feet. Hardy to about Zone 5.

Helleborus Pink Marble

Helleborus x lividus ‘ Pink Marble’

Oh, my word. I don’t even care if this one blooms I am so in love with the leaves which are a heather green with bright silver marbling and deep rose undersides. Then it gets even better beginning with dusky pink round buds opening to a soft rose white, lime and pink blossoms. The stems are a lovely burgundy. This variety forms clumps about 1 foot high and about 1 foot wide. Hardy to about Zone 7 so I’ll plant this one close to the house and see how it does this winter.

 

 

Helleborus Jacob

Helleborus ‘Jacob’

This extremely floriferous variety is the early bird of the Hellebore world. Not only will it flower the first year, but the outward facing snowy white flowers have a slight fragrance! The blossoms gradually fade to a soft lime green and pink. The leathery deep green leaves form a compact mound and the clusters of flowers are bourne up above them. It will grow to about 1 foot by 1 foot and is hardy to Zone 4.

Add a touch of magic to your winter garden with an exotic looking Hellebore. Paired with ferns, mosses, wintergreen and an old weathered low birdbath and you will have yourself a spectacular early evening photo op!

As always, our selection of plants is always changing. Please call ahead to confirm availability, 604.882.1201.

Cheers, Laurelle
