A hybrid of H.foetidus we were given a plant of by a nurseryman in Christchurch. As the name implies, the foliage is quite gold in colour. The more sun it gets, the more yellow the leaves. Appears to be hardy, it is quite a stand out plant. First impression is that it may require some serious nitrogen, but it doesnt. Flowers are similar to the other H.foetidus, with the distinctive maroon edging on the bell shaped flowers.

H.foetidus is a much under-rated plant and much maligned due to it's not so attractive odour. A great landscaping plant that will tolerate a much wider range of sites than most hellebores. 'Sopron' has quite distinct blue-green leaves, light green stems, will grow up to 60 cms and has tall, strong flower stems. The flowers tend to be slightly largwe than 'Wester Flisk'.

A hybrid of H.niger given  to us by a prominent Japanese grower of hellebores, Ichiro Noda. Pure white flowers have a true semi-double appearence with elongated nectaries of the same pure white colour. The major difference between this hybrid and other Anemone centered hybrids, is that the elongated nectaries remain on the flower after fertilisation. Flower fades to a pretty green with age and is quite thick in the petals. A very good compact plant with very distinctive leaves.

Commonly referred to as the Christmas Rose, 'White Magic' is an evergreen plant that grows to 40-50 cms in height and will grow into quite a large clump of 50 cms in diameter. It has large pure white flowers with a green eye on thick, tall stems that push the flower well above the leaves. As the flowers age, which may also coincide with fertilization, they turn pink. This plant needs good drainage. It can stand the dry but loathes continual wet feet. Try planting beneath Rhodos or deciduous trees - the roots of the trees will provide the drainage.
