Helleborus orientalis Thoroughbred

Availability Pot Size
Still Growing

An evergreen, clump forming perennial with attractive, divided, glossy green leaves. During winter and early spring Hellebores produce beautiful, cup shaped flowers. Our Thoroughbreds are grown by seed so each plant will vary in flower colour, colours range from white, pink and purple.


Grows best in a part shade position with a rich, moist, though well-draining soil. If foliage becomes damaged it can be completely cut back in early winter before the flowers appear. Hellebores will benefit from an annual feed in spring with a good quality fertiliser.

Landscape Uses

Helleborous are a perfect plant for cottage or formal gardens. They are excellent mass planted under trees or in other shaded areas of the garden. Look fantastic planted under Betula ‘Moss White’ or with other traditional favourites such as Camellia and Daphne.
