Helleborus orientalis Double Roses – Fully double hellebore, in shades from the palest pink to reds. These winter flowering perennial beauties really do resemble roses. Flowers last sometimes until late spring and slowly turn varying shades of green. The ’ Double Roses’ hybrid produces long stems and is an excellent cut flower. Lush deep evergreen leaves make attractive clumps for 1/2 shade to shade gardens. Hardy and low water need. 45cm x 50cm.
Hellebore seeds depend on having several months in damp compost. (Not in a fridge) Sow seeds immediately you receive them and keep tray in a cold place ie. a shady corner of unheated poly house or protected part of the garden. Natural germination will occur in cooler months in southern hemisphere May to September. Never use artificial heat as this will prevent them from germinating. Keep ungerminated seed tray for at least two years. Pot on seedling, as they germinate, to mature before planting out in the garden.
