(aka: Helleborus 'Snow Bunting') We were provided with incorrect information about this plant, but here is the real scoop. This is the first hybrid of Helleborus x hybridus x Helleborus niger (a previously assumed impossible cross) that appeared as a seedling among Helleborus x hybridus at the Yokohama garden in Japan. The foliage is intermediate between the two plants, and the clumps are topped starting around January 1 (NC) with flat white flowers that age to a reddish-pink in cool weather. This very vigorous deer-reistant clump has proven to be quite impressive and has thrived in hot climates where H. niger is just a composted memory. These sterile plants are propagated by tissue culture. (Yes, plant cloning is legal in all parts of the country except Lynchburg, Virginia.)
