Helleborus General Information

Helleborus was named the Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year in 2005. Helleborus 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 consistent moisture to establish, then are carefree. Spent flower heads can be cut back to promote new foliage growth or to prevent unwanted 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 (or recommended) but can be performed in early spring if desired. Remove young side plantlets with roots and replant. Water well.
