Perfect for dry shade and completely deer proof!

Helleborus Winter Magic™ Candy Love

Candy Love bursts into bloom with soft, pastel shades of yellow and pink. It was selected because it is so incredibly floriferous, even at a young age and because it makes a large clump in the garden in no time.

From the breeding brilliance of Belgian hellebore expert, Thierry van Paemel comes the Winter Magic™  Series.  These superior, incredibly floriferous selections make wonderful pot plants and permanent, deer proof, drought tolerant additions to any shady spot.  All selections are sturdy and vigorous with leathery evergreen leaves covered in a veil of beautiful  powder-grey.  Big, outfacing blooms are held well above the foliage, developing a greenish tinge as they mature.  Blooming will begin in the winter months in mild regions and last well into the warmer days of spring.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
