Helleborus General Information

Helleborus were named the Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year in 2005. They are perfect perennials when you need a splash of color as you weary of winter's grip. Lovely nodding cup-shaped flowers herald the coming of spring. Avoid dry soil with full sun. Good evergreen groundcover.

Helleborus Plant Care

Prefers humus-rich, well-drained soil and regular watering. Spent flower heads can be cut back to promote new foliage growth and to prevent too many volunteer seedlings. Many plantlets will form around base of parent plant and will bloom around the third year if left alone. Division is generally not needed but can be performed in early spring if desired.
