Soil: Best grown in organically rich, humus, well-drained soils amended with plenty of organic matter, such as well-aged leaf mold and compost. Prefers a soil that is neural to slightly alkaline. Add lime if your soil is extremely acid.
Light: Part shade to full shade
Water: Drought-tolerant once established, Hellebores are at their best in evenly moist soil in partial shade. Water well during extended dry periods.
Spacing: 1.5 - 2 ft. - Locate plants in areas protected from cold winter winds. Although the foliage is evergreen, it may become scorched and tattered in extremely harsh winters, particularly if not sited in locations protected from cold winter winds and/or insulated by snow cover.
Fertilizing: Plants will benefit from a light application of granular, balanced fertilizer, or side-dressing of compost and organic amendments when new growth appears in spring.
Winterizing: Do not prune back for winter; a light mulch of salt marsh hay may be beneficial. Prune back old foliage in spring to make room for new growth.
Maintenance & Pruning: Cut back flowering stems after bloom to promote new foliage growth. Plants may be slow to settle in, once they do, they rarely need division and may resent it.
ReviewsWrite a reviewHelleboresKay V | Jun 22, 2013I received my package of Hellebores this week. I want to let you know that they are the finest looking set of live plants I have ever purchased by mail order catalog or via internet. The plants are vigorous, large sized, healthy, with immense root structure, and they were impeccably packaged to handle the rigors of shiping. Congratulations on a job well done. I will be ordering more plants from your company in the years ahead
