Barry Glick is known for his “Sunshine Selections” of Helleborus x hybridus…
No matter where you live, whether you make your home in the snowy American Heartland, warm subtropical Florida, the frozen mountains of Maine, sunny southern California, or the moist Pacific Northwest, you can grow flowers like these in your own backyard.
Even if you believe that you’re cursed with a “Black Thumb”, you will succeed. That’s how easy they are.
Not only will they grace your table with beautiful cut flowers, they’ll provide color in your landscape at a time when there virtually is none. And….they’re such long lived perennials that they’ll still be thriving when they plant you in the ground.
The ‘Sunshine Selections’ of Helleborus x hybridus are the result of over 30 years of painstaking attention to detail, careful parental selection, worldwide searching for the best germplasm and hand pollination. These evergreen, long lived, deerproof, perennial plants are guaranteed to reward you with a continual bloom in Feb, Mar, Apr and May. I’ve been addicted to Hellebores for quite some time now and I’d love to share my obsession with you by inviting you to come see more than 6 acres of Hellebores in full bloom. The best time for peak bloom is mid March – mid April. Please email me for an appointment.
