HGC® SP Abby

Helleborus x hybridus

Abby is the only double yellow Lenten Rose in the Spring Promise® series. Flushed with delicate splashes of red, their large yellow flowers sound the bell for spring from February onwards. Abby thrives especially well under deciduous trees, shrubs and conifers that provide shade in the summer. This precious, hardy perennial is also a perfect plant for container plantings on balconies and terraces. The blue and red shades of iris (Iris), grape hyacinths (Muscari), alum root (Heuchera hybrids) and liverwort (Hepatica nobilis) are a wonderful match for the yellow blooms.
