Hellebores from Het Wilgenbroek

Thierry and Anneke Van Paemel, along with their children Tom and Tineke, have developed an exceptional assortment of hellebores, which just happens to be their favorite plant! They even have a retail garden center called Het Wilgenbroek that specializes in the sale of hellebores in their home town in Belgium.

Through innovation with the University of Ghent and a strong commitment to quality and ease of growing, many new varieties have been bred and will be sold worldwide. The goal at Het Wilgenbroek is to further expand the hybridizing range of interspecific hellebores and to offer a true seed strain by color and type of their Helleborus orientalis selections. Along with his staff, Thierry has been working for the past ten years to select seedlings and group them into type and color ranges. Each year they rogue out plants that do not fit the selected type and collect seed from plants that do fit, strengthening their seed strain lines.

After ten years of selecting and collecting seed, they are happy to be finally offering the Winter Magic™ strain of hand selected Helleborus orientalis to growers all over the world. Not only are these strains true to their descriptions, but they germinate and fill a 72 cell liner in less than one year, making production much shorter and sales more economical than other seed strains currently on the market.

All Het Wilgenbroek plants are pollinated by hand and the new selections, which are obtained every year, will be trialed and tested all over the world and then offered for future year sales.

The nursery is exceptional because of its unique location in a natural environment. Herbaceous borders, shrubs and trees offer inspiration to their customers every season. Additionally, their nursery has been an MPS A label which means they grow in the most environmentally friendly methods possible.
