Another saucy double, this one in luscious cherry and orchid shades! Very decadent. ‘Berry Swirl’ bears 3” blooms packed with petals that are colorful from both below and above (which is helpful, since the flowers are nodding, of course.) Occasionally white flowered individuals with red-purple borders may appear in the mix. Reaches 20" x 24" at maturity. Long lived and hardy, Hellebores are a mainstay of the shade garden and provide ornament and interest through the Winter months and beyond! Tolerant of clay, drought (once established,) deer and poor soil, plus they’re really lovely plants. Part of the Winter Jewels series, ‘Berry Swirl’ was bred by Ernie and Marietta O’Byrne of Eugene Oregon, who painstakingly hand select and pollinate their unique strains to ensure consistency, quality and vigor.
