Hellebores ‘Merlin’

Hellebores MerlinExperience flowers magically changing from light to medium pink, and maturing to a dark burgundy on our newest Hellebore ‘Merlin’. Deep green evergreen foliage has lighter veins and plum colored stems. Bloom time is late winter to spring with clusters of forward facing flowers. This hardy perennial is a compact grower to 10-13”, making it an excellent choice in containers or shady borders.

 

Other new hellebores varieties to check out are ‘Maestro’ with cream flowers blushed with pink, ‘Monte Cristo’ blushed peachy-pink with blue grey leaves, and ‘Snow Frills’ a lightly fragrant double white. Other favorites such as ‘Winter Jewels’ also grace our courtyard, with colors ranging from apricot to almost black.

 

Hellebores are a long lived perennial, ideal for shade or morning sun, and as an added bonus are deer and rabbit resistant.  Come discover the magic of ‘Merlin’ and his many friends at Squak Mt. today.
