(aka: H. x nigristern) Special thanks to Ashwood Nursery of England for allowing us to offer their selection of this rare sterile lenten rose hybrid (H. niger x H. x sternii). The result is a hellebore with the growth habit of H. niger and the wonderful silver leaf patterns seen in H. x sternii. This is truly an amazing plant for the woodland garden, sure to make all your neighboring gardeners envious. These are probably root hardy at least through Zone 6, but the old foliage may look ragged and need to be removed in spring. These are all from divisions of a single clone...in other words, each is identical.
