Helleborus argutifolius (Corsican Hellebore) is an excellent garden plant which grows up to 1m producing striking lime green clusters of flowers and dissected evergreen foliage.   

It is described by the RHS as follows:-

Harvington Hellebores® are excellent, easy to grow garden plants and flower at that time of year when there may be little or no other floral colour. They are winter flowering, frost hardy perennials, that reliably come back year after year, flowering from December through to the end of March. Their dark green, glossy, evergreen foliage also provides year-round interest.  

Hellebores look particularly attractive against planting companions such as snowdrops, aconites and early daffodils. They create a perfect ground cover for areas of dappled shade, such as borders under deciduous trees and shrubs, but will also thrive in patio pots.   

Upon receiving your Harvington Hellebores® plugs, please allow some light and air into your plants immediately and keep them in a cool light place.  Ensure that the plug plants are kept moist at all times and plant them as soon as possible after receiving them.  If possible, plant each plug in a 1 or 2 litre sized deep pot or container for this growing season so that they establish well before planting them out. Once they have rooted down into the pots they will be ready to plant into the garden or into containers in the autumn or following spring.
