Unique, double blooms of very nearly black are a sensational sight in the late winter or very early spring landscape. They grow atop 18-24" stems for easy visibility and prefer full to partly shaded areas such as wooded areas. One of the first flowers to appear, it's sure to attract a lot of attention. Bring a couple of blossoms indoors and float them in a bowl of water for an eye-catching centerpiece. Deer resistant and drought tolerant. Zones 4-9. Ships in 3" pot. Helleborus orientalis 'Dashing Groomsmen'
Among the earliest blooms to emerge in early spring, Hellebores, also known as Lenten Roses, sometimes push up through late-season snow to show their pretty faces to the world. Hardy, vigorous and easy to grow, they prefer well-drained soil and will become drought-tolerant in later years. They add color and beauty to an otherwise bleak landscape, appearing before any of the traditional spring-blooming flowers. This deer-resistant shade perennial is available in a variety of colors, and looks marvelous in woodland areas and around shrubs and tree lines.
