Helleborus argutifolius is endemic to Corsica and Sardinia and is a great plant for:
- its magnificent evergreen, satiny, dentate grey-green foliage;
- bushy habit;
- its large bouquets of chartreuse green spring flowers from February to May.
It is easy to grow in the sun or light shade in well-drained neutral to alkaline soil, which is not too dry in the summer.
Planting tip: accompany this hellebore with a pale-green flowering daffodil for a very effective spring duo, and with grasses like Stipa tenuifolia to contrast light and heavy habits. Freely reseeds wherever it's happy! In acid soil, add some lime in the form of crushed shells or lithothamnium calcareum seaweed.
