Hellebore ‘Dark and Handsome’ is part of the Wedding Partytm series, developed by Hans Hansen. It is the darkest in the series, with dark purple, almost black nodding flowers with a lime green center. This plant is new to the garden (2020) and it has come into bloom for us in mid-January.
The flowers are meant to be 2.5″ to 3″ but ours are only about 1.5″, however that could be because of their juvenile status. Will update this in future years to see if they do come to promised size.
Humus rich, well-drained soil is about their only requirement. They can take a fair bit of shade, are drought tolerant once established, deer and rabbit resistant, and care free.
