Hellebore 'HGC Snow Dance'

Hellebores (also known as Lenten Rose, Winter Rose or Christmas Roses) are a group of herbaceous perennials and are in the Ranunculaceae family. They originate from various parts of Asia and Europe, many are evergreen and some have marbled or interesting foliage. They usually produce flowers from late autumn through to early spring and can be found in a wide range of colours and shades in both single and double flowers. They prefer fertile and free draining soil but not in full sun. The sepals do not fall as petals would, but remain on the plant, sometimes for many months. Many species are commonly grown in gardens, and many cultivars are also available. Helleborus x ballardiae is an interspecific hybrid hellebore and is the result of a cross between Helleborus niger with Helleborus lividus. It was named after Helen Ballard, who was a british lady known for her breeding of Hellebores. The plant has qualities of both parents, quite often with marbled or decorative foliage. 'HGC Snow Dance' is part of the HGC Series and has white flowers which open from pink buds, on red stems.
