The Q&A Archives: heleborous ??

Question: i recently purchased a winter flowering perenial that was identified as heleborous(sp?)by the nursery employee at the HD store; trying to get info such as size, light, water,etc.

Answer: Hellebore, or Helleborus, are hardy perennials. Some of the common names for these woodland plants include Hellebore, Christmas rose and Lenten rose. They grow best in partial to full shade, in average to rich, well-drained soil with plenty of added compost. Hellebores are easy-care plants. Aside from giving them a shady spot in compost enriched soil, all you need to do is water them through dry summer periods.

They usually grow 14" high and about 24" wide. Enjoy!
