This marvelous seed strain of Helleborus foetidus was discovered by Martin Cragg-Barber of Chedglow Nursery in the UK, but has also prospered on this side of the pond. The 2' tall stalks of Helleborus 'Chedglow' are clothed with mostly gold variegated leaves...brightest in spring. The plants are topped in late winter with typical large, green candelabra-type flower heads. In NC, the summer foliage becomes more of a chartreuse green. We have found 90% of the seedlings are also gold. The same plant is also sold under the name of Helleborus 'Gold Bullion'. As with all Helleborus foetidus, good drainage is essential for best performance.
