Helleborus (Hellebore) Golden Lotus


History of the Hellebore:

Helleborus can be also be referred to as the 'Christmas' or 'Lenten' Rose as they are most prominent throughout the winter period. They are in fact a close relative to the Buttercup family. 

In many ancient civilizations, Hellebore's were utilised to form medicines that would aid in the cure of gout, paralysis and insanity.

However, it was found that these plants are highly toxic and if ingested in large volumes, would cause some quite nasty symptoms such as vertigo and would often lead to swelling of the tongue and throat.

About Helleborus Golden Lotus:

Helleborus Golden Lotus are highly unusual and incredibly sought- after plants with golden-yellow double blooms that appear during the winter, regardless of the weather conditions. Large blooms up to 3” across, smother dark evergreen leaves and an abundance of clumping foliage. Deer and rabbit resistant. Height and spread 60cm (24"). Fully hardy perennial. Supplied as young plants.

Planting Guide:

Helleborus are best suited to moist, well-drained soil and need an area of dappled shade. Leaf mould should be applied to retain moisture levels and the planting area should be watered thoroughly.
