New York Night Hellebore
Finishing out winter with flair, this hellebore (also called a Lenten rose) makes a big show of purplish, near-black blooms. Its dramatic coloration proves especially striking against a late-winter snowfall. The glossy green, leathery foliage does a show of its own, staying handsome even after the late winter to early spring blooming season-in warmer climates it's a year-round feature! As it is very easy to grow, vigorous and both deer resistant and drought tolerant, this beauty is a great addition all over the garden. It fills out borders nicely and makes a container planting simply stunning. You can also float a single bloom in a bowl of water for a sophisticated centerpiece for your dinner table. New York Night provides excellent winter interest. This means it's especially useful as a ground cover or naturalized in drifts over an area where, in the winter months, grass would otherwise be sorely missed. Bred by the great Hans Hansen.
