Walters Gardens hybridizer Hans Hansen has a passion for hellebores. In his breeding work, he selects for plants with notable vigor, showy floral displays with large numbers of blossoms per plant, and rich flower colors. The HONEYMOON® series showcases his single flowered selections, available in numerous, beautiful color shades.
'New York Night' has 3", single flowers with shades of black that include deep grey-purple, jet black, and black-purple.
Hellebores signal spring! They are often flowering during the Christian season of Lent, from which they get their common name, Lenten Rose. This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed.
