Position: partial shade Soil: any moist, neutral to alkaline soil, including heavy soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: January to April Other features: all parts of the plant cause severe discomfort if ingested; the sap may cause skin irritation; dark greyish-green leaves give off an unpleasant odour when crushed Hardiness: fully hardy A new hybrid form (Helleborus niger x Helleborus foetidus) that is famed for its incredibly long flowering period – often from early winter to spring. It is pretty too, with nodding pink-flushed green flowers that top slender stems. Great for the woodland floor, or underplanting shrubs and trees in partially shaded borders. Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould, compost or manure to the planting hole. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted orga nic matter around the base of the plant and provide a top-dressing of general fertiliser each spring.
