Helleborus Pretty Ellen types (single flowers) and Helleborus Double Ellen types (full flowers) have been specially selected by grower Ellen Akerboom.
There are many cultivars of Helleborus orientalis that have arisen through crossbreeding and through crossbreeding with various other Helleborus species. They grow 40 to 50 cm high and bloom from February to April. The flowers are between 4 and 6 cm in size and hang down slightly. There are several flowers on a stem, up to a maximum of 7. Many flower colors are possible, from white, to yellow and green, light and dark pink to very dark black-purple.
