HELLEBORUS 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, NO MATTER WHENEVER THIS MAY BE! They depend on having SEVERAL MONTHS in damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate IN THE COLD, usually between November and March in the Northern Hemisphere, regardless of when they are sown. Keep the seed tray in a cold place, e.g. a shady corner. Never use any artificial heat as this will prevent them from germinating. Keep ungerminated seed pots for at least two years!
