Helleborus WALBERTON’S® Rosemary

Helleborus x hybrida = ‘Walhero’

Helleborus hybrida WALBERTON’S® Rosemary = ‘Walhero’ is the best hellebore introduction in years, and one of the most unique of all hellebores with incredible numbers of white-veined pink cup-shaped flowers that deepen to glowing salmon tones. Being a cross between Helleborus niger and Helleborus orientalis, the flower heads are more upward-looking than other varieties. It has inherited the longer flower period of its H. niger parentage and it produces a much greater number of flowers than others. Stunning in pots, borders, or landscape.
