I bought the plant in May of this year and right now I'm just delighted that it survived the summer ! The nursery that I bought it from told me that they are harder to grow than most Helleborus. He suggested planting it on a slight slope in bright or dappled shade. So far so good ! We'll see what spring brings.

I just bought this plant this summer and it is beautiful. The following is a description I found on the internet:

Helleborus Sun Marble A stunning Hellebore from Barry Glick. The grayish leaves are crossed with white lines, following the veins of the leaves. This is not a variegated leaf; it is truly a marbleized leaf pattern. The flower is white and reaches 2 or more inches across.

Does anyone grow this Hellebore in Z5?
