A 7" potted Hellebores Plant in our hand-made cream planter or cement planter.
The hellebores plant makes for a great gift or house plant and can be planted outdoors in gardens, large planters or placed on a balcony patio. Hellebores are among the earliest perennial flowers to bloom, welcoming spring with their rose-like blossoms. In warm locales, Helleborus orientalis (commonly called Lenten rose) can bloom outdoors at Christmastime.
How to care for your new Helleborus plant:
SUNLIGHT: Hellebores prefer partial to full shade during the summer months but require more sunlight in winter. An ideal planting location is underneath a deciduous tree where they are shaded by foliage in summer but are exposed to full sun after the tree drops its leaves in the fall.
WATER: Although they like some moisture, hellebores should not be allowed to sit in wet soil for a prolonged time or they will rot. Once established, they can handle drier soil.
HUMIDITY/TEMPERATURE: Hardiness will vary with species, but you can find hellebore suitable for USDA cold hardiness zones 3 to 9—most are hardy as far north as zone 4 or 5. In colder climates, protect hellebores from harsh winter winds. Hellebores tolerate a wide range of humidity.
* Note: Helleborus are highly toxic to pets and humans when ingested.
