Are they right for me

plays_in_the_dirt(SW Georgia/Z 8)June 1, 2005

I was playing around with the idea of getting some "Royal Helleborus Mix" plants I don't know anything about them though,I have a few questions:

1) Do the grow in all day shade?

2) Are they easy to grow with little to no problems?

Oh yeah I'm in Georgia zone 8


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

With the possible exception of not being overly fond of heavy clay soils (pretty typical in Georgia) and excessive soil acidity, they should be very easy for you to grow. I find most hellebores perform and flower best with at least some sun during the day - they are shade tolerant, not necessarily shade lovers.

The Royal Heritage strain would not necessarily be my first choice - I find the plants from this breeding program less vigorous than other x hybridus seed strains and with less distinctive coloring.
