We have been most impressed with the Heuger hybrid Helleborus x ballardiae 'Merlin' in our trials. The 28" wide clump of dark green leaves is topped in late winter with 1' tall stalks of outfacing medium pink flowers. Okay, that's nice enough reason to grow Helleborus 'Merlin', but as the flowers age, their color intensifies to an incredibly rich, dark, dusky pink that's truly hard to describe, but resembles something like fall sunset in the high desert.
