Planting instructions:

Hellebores are enjoyable to grow because they are low-maintenance and disease and pest-free. Plant them at crown level. In the Spring simply trim back last year's foliage. These beautiful and rare plants can adapt to almost any growing conditions. They prefer rich, moist, organic soil, but they will also grow in clay or sandy soil. Once the plant is established, it can even tolerate short periods of drought. They also tolerate soil pH that ranges anywhere from slightly acidic to slightly alkaline.

Hellebores are shade plants that need to be protected from the hot afternoon sun. They will grow in full shade under large deciduous trees as long as they receive full sun from winter to spring before the trees get their leaves.  The winter sun helps bloom setting.  

Mulch Hellebores heavily in the Fall.  New seedlings will grow in this mulch come spring and can then be transplanted elsewhere in the garden.

WARNING: Hellebores are poisonous. Do not consume any part of the plant!
