Helleborus orientalis

Helleborus orientalis (20091439A)

Two different collections of Helleborus orientalis can be seen in the woodland garden. Both collected from Georgia. The smaller, with petals shaded pink and red was growing at 1210m on a grassy slope with Primula spp and amongst Picea and Carpinus. The more vigorous growing and consistent white flowered plants were found at a lower altitude 632m on a hillside of deciduous woodland. The variability of the wild species and its wide geographic location; Southern Europe to SW Asia, gives rise to many selected and named cultivars. Often sold as H. x hybridus cultivars.
