(aka: Helleborus COSEH 900) Helleborus argutifolius 'Snow Fever' has been a lovely surprise in our trials, sailing though our cold winter of 2013/2014 unscathed while all other Helleborus argutifolius forms were killed to the ground. The patent application lists Helleborus 'Snow Fever' as a cross of two seedlings, but there is obviously much more to this than they disclosed. To us, Helleborus 'Snow Fever' appears to be a tetraploid form of Helleborus 'Janet Starnes'. Whatever its background really is, it's a dramatic improvement over any other form of Helleborus argutifolius. Helleborus argutifolius 'Snow Fever' makes a 1' tall x 15" wide clump of extremely thick, trifoliate, heavily white speckled foliage. The clumps are topped, starting in early March, with terminal clusters of upright creamy flowers.
