A superb, new and exclusive variety of Hellebore, recently introduced to the UK from America.
Helleborus 'Phoebe' produces absolutely stunning, double flowers that are pink in colour and delightfully speckled with deep-red to purple. This rare cultivar is unusual in that as the flowers mature, they fade to a creamy-white, creating a spectacular display; especially when the plant shows both pink and cream flowers together giving a wonderful two-tone effect.
Like all hellebores, 'Phoebe' has evergreen leathery leaves that are present all year round, however these can be cut down to the ground in Winter to maximise the effect of the striking blooms. Ideal for a shady spot, like all oriental Hellebores, 'Phoebe' tends to thrive in a slightly heavier soil. These plants will look excellent planted in patio containers as a feature of their own, or planted amongst other hellebores and winter flowering plants.
Supplied in approx 3 litre containers, big strong plants, full of buds and flowers in season.
