Design IdeasHellebores are excellent off season interest for gardens. They adapt to use as groundcover and woodland garden floor where they are perfectly adapted to humusy soils and filtered shade. Adds interest to wild gardens that need accent plants with unique character. Exquisite blooms are ideal along pathways and walks and around gateways where they are appreciated at close range. Spot into mixed borders or apply in the new jewel box garden style with exotic succulents and high color perennials.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.
