Outstanding Qualities

This vigorous hybrid hellebore starts flowering in late winter with dark burgundy-pink buds opening with flat outward-facing ivory white flowers. The blooms are flushed with pale green and are profusely borne on strong short stems. As the flowers age they turn shades of pink and pale green. The overall effect is quite beautiful. The leaves are deep green with light silvery veins and a compact rounded to upright habit. It is a very tidy plant in growth.
