HELLEBORUS X STERNII
This remarkable and impressive hybrid between H. argutifolius and H. lividus, which seeds quite true, has inherited the robust hardiness of H. argutifolius, but retained the purple seeds pods and green and pink marbled foliage, coloured red beneath, of H. lividus.
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!
