Helleborus Orientalis Arthur's Black Buttercup
Given to us by a good friend many years ago, this lovely variant produces several quite tall thin stems holding relatively diminutive, almost black flowers, that do indeed resemble black buttercups. It makes a distinctive and attractive variation from all other hellebores we grow. Some variations may occur from these seeds but all should be lovely.
Sow these seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, WHENEVER THIS MAY BE! They need SEVERAL MONTHS in damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate as the season naturally warms, usually between January and March in the Northern Hemisphere, regardless of when they are sown. Keep the seed tray in a cold place, and check every few weeks. They are COLD germinators! Never, ever, use any artificial heat as this will prevent them from germinating, and ultimately kill them! Keep ungerminated seed pots for at least two years!
