Helleborous Ice Queen is a lovely crisp white flowered Hellebore tinged with soft green in the eye of the flower. Prefers a moist semi-shaded position but is quite adaptable. Flowers will appear late winter through to spring. A hardy perennial plant. Hellebores are ideal for growing in shady spots or under trees, preferring good drainage. Hellebores also enjoy soil of higher pH, lime rather than acidic soils although as long as there is relatively neutral pH you can grow hellebores with Rhododendrons. In areas that have heavy clays, one needs to be a lot more careful to provide the necessary drainage. Planting in raised beds is one helpful solution or planting under trees is another.
Hellebores enjoy being mulched, which has many benefits — it keeps the plant moist and cool over the Summer, is a great source of organic material and is also really good at keeping the weeds down. The best time to apply mulch is generally in the Spring at the time when the old leaves are cut off just as the flower buds are appearing.
