Product Description

Review

Very much in vogue the last few years, hellebores bring colour to the garden during the winter months when not much else is either left or started into growth. Particularily popular are the deep purples of the Helleborus hybridus, sought and fought over whenever appearing for sale. Award-winning garden writer, Graham Rice, shares his expertise on their cultivation, propagation and choice to give the grower the best possible information on their care. Their foliage comes in a multitude of hues and forms from the lime green of the native Helleborus foetidus and Helleborus viridis to the pretty silver and pink-leaved Helleborus lividus from Majorca and the celery-like foliage of Helleborus vesicarus from Syria. Flower colours range from green, white, yellow, pink and purple to mixes and spots. The recent surge in hybridization has produced shades of every hue making them amenable to any colour scheme in the border. Their evergreen foliage provides a background for the spring and summer stars, coming into their own once these transient divas disappear below the surface. Rimed with hoar frost and laden with blooms, they bring a cheer and a lift to the spirits on a crisp winter's morning. Part of the RHS Wisley handbook series, this is a comprehensive and concise look at Hellebores, fully illustrated and clearly written. Aimed at both the amateur and professional grower, this is an invaluable addition to any serious horticulturalists bookshelf. - Lucy Watson

I have two hellebores in the garden, one large red and one very large creamy white. They seed freely but I cannot get seedlings established in the garden. They are beautiful plants and they flower in very early Spring before the earliest of the Spring bulbs and they keep going for at least 3 months.

This book has introduced me to many more exciting varieties and colours of hellebores. Like all the books in this Wisley series there are about 90 pages, lots of colourful pictures and useful diagrams/sketches. After an Introductory chapter there are chapters on:
- How to Grow Hellebores
- Hellebores in the Garden
- Choosing your Hellebores

There are useful tips about growing from seed and from division. Growing mediums, locations and moving them. There's also a section on the pests and diseases that can spell doom for hellebores.

My white plant is in the most heavily shaded part of the garden underneath a very large honeysuckle and sheltered between house and garage walls. It's been there 10 years or so and it thrives. I would like to be able to repeat this experience with more hellebores and this book has given me the encouragement to try.

I love these RHS guides and enjoyed this one particularly. Hellebores are beautiful and fascinating, especially as they flower when not much else has yet emerged from the ground. This book gives an excellent overview of the cultivars available and covers their care and propagation.

... as it says in the introduction to this 160p page guide and manual to the cultivation and appreciation of these wonderful plants. There are sections on growing the various species and named varieties, propagation (though once they have decided they like you, they seed - and hybridize - with a charming promiscuity), plant associations, and a small collection of other writings and a look at the National Collection. Nicely put together read.
