This hellebore is incredible with beautiful dark, slate grey-green leaves and smoky pink flowers which gradually darken to crimson.

With stem ends seared for 10 seconds it makes the BEST winter and spring cut flower too.

The leaves on this evergreen variety are a worthwhile feature, don’t remove them as you would with other Hellebores
