Is this Helleborus suitable as cut flower?
The Sternii can certainly be used as a cut flower. It has many flowers at the end of its strong stems. The leaf at the base of these stems is easy to remove. The Sternii works well as part of natural floral arrangements. These flowers are a little less striking than those of the Helleborus Niger or Orientalis.
Humus rich, slightly calcareous and well-draining
Normal, not too wet
To 60 cm
Evergreen or deciduous:
Cut off old or diseased leaves and after flowering, cut back dead stems down to the ground.
In spring and/or autumn using calcium and/or humus.
Flowers form the seeds needed for the Helleborus to spread
December – April
Because the Helleborus is one of the earliest plants to flower it is very attractive to bees waking from their winter sleep
