HELLEBORUS orientalis 'Spring Velvet'

Part shade
Fertile soil
Pot Size


Height x Spread: 40cm x 40cm

'Spring Velvet's' blooms are simply exquisite with an outer ring of wine red speckled soft pink petals framing an elaborate inner ruff of smaller petals and crown of yellow stamens.  Standing tall on sturdy stems above large deeply cut dark green foliage, its gently nodding flowers appear in early spring and last through the season, followed by delightful seedheads.

Introduced in 2018, this hardy perennial would make a great focal point for a winter container, really drawing the eye.  Said to be rabbit and deer resistant, it also makes excellent ground cover for a woodland garden providing year round interest.  Easy to grow, it will thrive in a fertile, moist soil in part shade.
