HGC® Marlon

Helleborus x ericsmithii

Evergreen Snow Rose Marlon bears cream-coloured blooms. Showing its first buds as early as November, it flowers unfailingly well into spring. The flowers turn an elegant greenish aubergine colour as they age. Placed in a matching earthenware pot, Marlon is a lovely embellishment on winter balconies and terraces. In the garden, sun-tolerant Marlon appreciates a limy humic location.
