| Zoom In Photo:
This wonderful cultivar is a vigorous hybrid hellebore that offers at least two and a half months of floral interest followed by a whole year of great foliage. In February the plump pink buds develop. By March the flowers open to reveal large creamy petals with dusty pink reverses and green centres. By April the cream colour deepens to green and dusty rose. The leathery evergreen bluish foliage is subtly mottled and held aloft by red stems. Deer resistant.
