Description[edit | edit source]

Hybrid hellebores are clumping, low-growing plants with evergreen foliage and showy flowers in winter and spring.

Growing Conditions[edit | edit source]

These plants grow well in both full sun and dense shade.

Varieties[edit | edit source]

Numerous cultivars are available in the trade, and the plants freely hybridize so that seedlings are often quite different from the parent plants.
