What an absolute delight this plant is during the entire year. Leaves are large and heavily variegated with a red splash where they join the stem. They are edged in pink and the new growth has lots of pink. The blossoms are yellowish-white and they also have pink tinges to them.
It has been suggested that Snow Fever is a tetraploid form of Helleborus ‘Janet Starnes’.
Pronunciation: hel-eh-BORE-us ar-gew-tih-FOH-lee-us
Species Meaning: With sharp-toothed leaves
The literature states that this plant is 11 tall and 15″ wide. So far, I have found it to be more like 2′ tall and wide and it seems to want to get larger, but is somewhat confined in the space that it is in.
