The wonderfully creamy flowers of Helleborus ericsmithii Molly’s White gradually take on a strong lime green tint as they mature, highlighting the superb circlet of creamy stamens. Equally handsome, the foliage provides year-round interest. Deeply lobed young leaves emerge bronze tinted and mature to reveal a conspicuous cream marbling.


These hellebores have been carefully bred from the Christmas Roses (Helleborus niger), to produce exceptionally robust varieties that flourish in our climate. The beautifully marked ‘petals’ are sepals (the petals modified to become nectaries), which is why the flowers last for so long. Harmful if eaten, may cause skin allergy.


Flowers: late November onwards

  • Moist, well drained soil
  • Partial shade preferred, will tolerate sun

Leave foliage to protect the young buds, but as the hellebore flowers, remove the old foliage to reveal the blooms, this looks attractive and helps to prevent disease. Top dress with fertiliser in the autumn.
