More Information
Botanical Pronunciationhel-eh-BORE-us
LoreHelleborus is an ancient plant that originated in southern and central Europe with documented use dating back beyond the Middle Ages and ancient civilizations. Various species were used by the Greek and Romans to ward off evil spirits and treat paralysis, gout, and insanity, though it is a known fact that all plants in this genus contain toxic compounds and should not be ingested. The upside: these toxic properties make the plants undesirable to deer and rabbits, so hellebores are a great solution in areas where grazing can be an issue.
Average Size at MaturityFoliage clumps 18 to 24 in. tall and wide. Slowly spreads.
Bloom TimeWinter to Early Spring
Design IdeasPlant this perennial where its off-season blossoms will grace shaded and woodland landscapes. Exquisite blooms are ideal along pathways and walks and around gateways where they are appreciated at close range. The unique marbled foliage will provide subtle year-round interest that pops against darker foliage.
