Gold Collection® Jacob Hellebore

Helleborus niger 'HGC Jacob' PP #17,799

An early bloomer, this remarkably robust selection produces a profusion of large, long-lasting, forward-facing, white flowers which mature to green. In colder climates, flowers are tinged with pink. Large, deep green leaves form a sturdy, uniform, compact clump. Ideal in shaded woodland gardens, containers and window boxes. Evergreen.
