Hellebore 'Double Queen' is one of the most beautiful winter-flowering plants and is sure to make an eye-catching display wherever you decide to plant them.
This collection has a mix of large, ruffled, and speckled double blooms, each one is totally unique, and this is because it has come from seed. Perfect for brightening your garden while other plants are still slumbering, they will also make a great accompaniment to spring bulbs, and although they are dainty to look at, they are incredibly tough whatever the weather.
Their cup-shaped blooms provide a valuable nectar source for early pollinators and are a favourite with bumble bees. You will get a stunning mix of colours, many with speckles and darker edges to their petals. With flowers from February - April they are a must for every spring garden!
So easy to grow, they will slowly establish into small clumps, increasing in number year after year - it is not uncommon to have upwards of 50 flowers after around 5 years. They will thrive out of direct sun, as they prefer to grow in rich, well-drained soil in dappled shade. Hellebores are essentially a woodland plant, so thrive in soil that is humus rich and moist. They can also be grown in pots if space is limited, provided they do not dry out in summer.
Supplied as a mix of 6 plugs, ready to pot or plant out.
