Party Dress Group is a group of double flowered hybrids with H. torquatus ancestory.

Bears semi-double flowers in cream to darkish purple shades and a tinge of green, in late winter to early spring.

Likes a well drained but moist soil in light shade/woodland conditions. Easy to keep once established but may need a leafy mulch in harsh winters.
