Huge blooms in fabulous and unusual colors, all fully double, and borne on one of the easiest-to-grow plants for the American home garden! Blooms of 3" or more come in the widest array of colors - beautiful pinks, whites, purples, greens, even rare and highly-sought yellow! They thrive in shade and bloom up to 4 months in late winter and early spring, when other plants aren't even awake yet; and nothing is easier to grow! Pest and disease free, they prosper in any soil, even clay, and aren't fazed by heat or drought. These tough plants will live for 50 years or more, growing into neat clumps 18" tall and 2-3' across, and make a wonderful evergreen ground cover for a wooded area, or the shade garden. Zones 4-9. Ships in 3" Pot. Helleborus Winter Thriller™ 'Fluffy Ruffles'. Partial to Full Shade. Deer tend to avoid.
