Winter-flowering hellebores, also know as the Christmas Rose, are a superb addition ro any garden, flowering when little else is growing, let alone in bloom. 'Black Swan' boasts sumptuous, dark velvety petals, with pure white stamens, and it is a great improvemnt on older black-flowered hellebores because the jet-black blooms face upward rather than down towards the soil. Height and spread: 60cm (2').

Height Up to 60cm (24in)

Pot up hellebore plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. When plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant hellebores in neutral or alkaline soil, in dappled shade. Hellebores prefer a moist, humus rich, fertile soil that does not dry out in summer or sit waterlogged in winter. When growing hellebores on heavy clay or free draining gravel soils, add plenty of well rotted leaf mould or other organic matter to the soil prior to planting.
Mulch hellebores with well rotted manure or garden compost each spring. Hellebores resent disturbance after planting and may take some time to re-establish. However when clumps become overcrowded, lifting and dividing of hellebores should be undertaken immediately after flowering.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
