If you want to create a big impact shade garden display, try this vigorous bloomer, which produces up to 50 fully double blooms at a time. Presents velvety petals in deep red to burgundy. An easy-care landscaping option-it's drought tolerant, and neither deer nor rabbits tend to bother it. Considering, as well, that its foliage is evergreen and that it's an easily multiplying perennial-forming big mounds when left undisturbed, this hellebore is an ideal unique ground cover for shade. It blooms earlier than most perennials, showing up at the end of winter to early spring, when most of the neighbors' gardens are still in hibernation. Helleborus 'Sweetheart Ruffles'
