HGC® SP Lily

Helleborus x hybridus

Charming Lenten Rose beauty Lily presents its abundance of dazzling flowers from the beginning of January onwards. The double, large blooms can reach a diameter of up to 7 cm. The rose veins look as if they are brushed onto the white background with delicate strokes. Lily is a vigorous variety that forms clumps of up to 80 cm in diameter. Planted between lungwort (Pulmonaria) or Siberian bugloss (Brunnera macrophylla), it creates a gorgeous play of colours. Lily also harmonises well with daffodils (Narcissus), hyacinths (Hyacinthus orientalis) and dwarf irises (Iris barbata-nana).
