HELLEBORUS ORIENTALIS RITA'S BLACK
The original seeds of this lovely orientalis form came from our friend Rita's best black flowered plant, and the seedlings are all good with flowers ranging to darkest, deepest purple.
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!
