Helleborus orientalis are much loved and sought after for their ability to inject colour into a gloomy winter garden.    'ViV®Victoria's' lush individual single flowers are particularly striking with burgundy red petals encircling a crown of pale lime green stamens.  The evergreen foliage is also attractive with a neat mound of deeply cut leathery leaves that provide structure and texture in the garden long after the flowers have faded.

Specially bred to produce lots of flower over a long period of time, the earliest blooms appear in late autumn in a display that can last well into spring.  Perfect for a cottage or wildlife garden, plant it where you can see it on a cold winter day or pick individual blooms for a floating display in a shallow bowl of water.  To thrive it needs to be grown in a rich, damp, non-acidic soil with some drainage in partial shade. 

Irritant to the skin, harmful if eaten.
