This stunning introduction from RD Plants of Devon, England, is a pewter-silver leaf selection of Helleborus argutifolius and, thanks to tissue culture, there is no seedling variation. To brighten a woodland garden, I can't imagine a better choice! The 20" tall x 2' wide deer-resistant clumps of Helleborus 'Silver Lace' (larger on the West Coast) are topped in late winter with stalks of green flowers, but with foliage like this, who cares? Even in colder zones where the plant is hardy but the leaves fry in winter, this would still be great for summer color. Good drainage and protection from winter sun in cold climates will keep the foliage attractive.
