Corsican Hellebore

Helleborus argutifolius

Distinctive woodland perennial with handsome, leathery foliage and unmistakable flowers. Clusters of lime green, nodding, cup-shaped flowers are appreciated for their ability to add color to winter gardens. Growing substantial enough to form a small shrub, this species is short-lived and will often reseed to perpetuate itself. More hardy than other Hellebores, this species can tolerate full sun in coastal climate conditions, but prefers shade and moisture in inland regions.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
