• Characteristics
  • Raised in 2000 by plant breeder David Tristram (whose father gave the first 'Potter's Wheel' to Washfield Nursery), Helleborus 'Walberton's Rosemary' is pink-flowered, extremely floriferous, and seems to be intermediate between its parents in many other characteristics. (wikipedia.org)
  • flowers
  • Clusters (cymes) of drooping, bell-shaped, greenish-white flowers (to 1" diameter) subtended by pale green bracts bloom at the tips of leafy stems commencing in February. (missouribotanicalgarden.org)
  • they are said to be the best of all hellebores for cut flowers. (wikipedia.org)
  • The whitish-green aphids are about 2-4mm long and form dense colonies on hellebores, coating them with a honeydew that can lead to the growth of sooty mold on the leaves and flowers of the hellebore. (wikipedia.org)
  • The weather today turned cold and misty, so many of the small early bloomers called it a day and folded up their flowers, but the hepaticas (liverworts) were quite nonchalant about the chilliness. (blogspot.com)
  • Sibthorpii, with its crisp, light green small leaves, and its much more modest and complementary flowers, escapes that hothouse look. (blogspot.com)
  • seeds
  • As with hellebores some others in the family, they do not like to be moved once established and seeds that are not planted soon after harvesting should be stored moist-packed in vermiculite to avoid dormancy and viability issues. (wikipedia.org)
  • colors
  • Pine Knot Best Strain' is a selection of unbloomed seedlings in mixed colors of the best single and semi-double hybrid hellebores which have been developed by Judith and Dick Tyler of Pine Knot Farms in Clarksville, Virginia. (missouribotanicalgarden.org)

  • Hellebores are staples of the garden that are relatively unknown outside of plant enthusiast circles. (poconorecord.com)
  • They don't flower quickly from seed and often finish flowering before most folks visit garden centers, so hellebores are rarely found at the large mass merchants. (poconorecord.com)
