Winter Jewels® Amber Gem Hellebore

Helleborus x hybridus 'Amber Gem'

SKU
06803
A double-flowered hybrid with blooms in subtle shades of soft yellow, each petal's edge exquisitely flushed in apricot-pink, almost as if air-brushed. Emerging in late winter from handsome evergreen foliage, the large nodding flowers last for weeks. Adds welcome color to dappled shade beds and garden borders; takes more sun in cool northern climates.
