Helle­borus x sternii

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

A good cul­ti­var, ‘Clifton’, is of­fered by Clifton Home­stead Nurs­ery.

The green­ish flower cups are dusted on the back with pink and held in bunches on red­dish stems. The ser­rated leaves are deep green with sil­ver veins.

As with all helle­bores, the beau­ti­ful flow­ers stay coloured for months and are best cut away in mid­sum­mer to al­low hand­some new fo­liage to emerge.
