Comments: Winter Jewels™ hellebores are from a hand-selected seed strain, thus each plant produces a slightly different flower. Some 'Berry Swirl's have cream centers and dark edges. Deep green leathery palmate leaves add interest to the winter garden. Handle drought, once established. Deer resistant. Plant 18" to 20" apart.
