'Magic Apricot' is a recent introduction, combining simple elegant Hellebore blooms in a range of soft pastel shades from palest pink to cream and apricot, sometimes deeply freckled, other times gently blushed deep pink or green, but all set off by a centre of soft yellow stamens. 

Evergreen and hardy with attractive mid green foliage, it is perfect for brightening up a shadier area of the garden or adding soft colour to a winter container.  Flowering reliably from late winter into spring, bees are drawn to its nectar rich blooms.  Like other Lenten Rose cultivars, it prefers dappled or partial shade in a non-acidic, moist but free draining soil, but can tolerate more shade too. 

Irritant to the skin, harmful if eaten.
