Lenten rose Interesting Notes

"For the past fourteen years I have traveled to personally hand select parent plants from the best breeders from around the world, including Elizabeth Strangman, Ashwood Nursery, Blackthorn Nurseries, Gisela Schmiemann and Phedar Nurseries. I journeyed not only for the plants but also to reap the benefits of their knowledge and encouragement. Brandywine Hellebores™ are seedlings that originated in my garden, and are the result of decades of work with these hand selected plants. I've used these tried and true hellebore foundations to build upon, and now my hybrids contain hand-pollinated, open-pollinated and self-pollinated plants. Color and form are the chief focal point of my breeding work, as evidenced by the single, anemone (semi-double) and doubles that abound in this premium mix." - David L. Culp, BrandywineHellebores.com

Helleborus Brandywine™ Growing and Maintenance Tips

Tolerant of many different soil types and light situations, Hellebores prefer soil with good drainage and the dappled shade of high trees. They work perfectly well in almost full sun to almost full shade, though flower production will be less in the shade of evergreens or a permanent structure. Hellebores are at their best in average soil moisture, but will tolerate dryness. Wet winter soils encourage root and crown rot.
