Helleborus x ericsmithii 'Winter Moonbeam'
Common Name: Hellebore Family: Ranunculaceae (The Buttercup Family)

Helleborus x ericsmithii 'Winter Moonbeam'
Zoom In Photo:

This hellebore has the most spectacular foliage within the genus -- blue-green leaves boldly adorned with dramatic, criss-crossing, silver veins combined with bright red petioles where the leaflets join. The clumps sport outfacing white flowers in spring which age to pink and then near red. A cross between H. lividus and H. niger from the UK's Harveys Garden Plants. Easier to grow than either of its parents. This hybrid group can be planted in more sun than typical hellebores. Deer resistant.
