Helleborus 'Fire and Ice' is a 2001 introduction from the defunct Collector's Nursery. The new foliage of this elegant form of Helleborus x sternii (argutifolius x lividus) emerges at the top of the 1' tall stems and is speckled white with a pink overlay as the new growth emerges...quite stunning, especially in spring. These are seed-grown, so each plant is slightly different.
