The hellebores are showy, undemanding perennials for California gardens. They have shiny, leathery leaves on long stalks, divided hand-like into several leaflets. Their pendant cupped flowers are presented in branched, sometimes massive clusters above the foliage in early spring, often lasting on the plants for two months or more. The flowers in this Suncrest Nurseries seed strain are white, sometimes with pink speckling on the petal interior surface. Part shade, reasonably well drained soil, and moderate watering are preferable.
