Crouching Tiger

The Marietta O’Byrne-developed Terra Nova-introduction, Helleborus x hybridus Winter Jewels ‘Jade Tiger’ is known for its double green flowers.  Because it is a seed-strain, you’ll see color variation in the Winter Jewels series from pure green to a dusky pink, yet all are edged with a thin purple line.  The O’Byrnes are known for their fabulous Hellebore introductions, getting stock from Ashwood Nursery, Blackthorn Nursery, and de Hessenhof.  It was a real pleasure to hear the hilariously self-deprecating John Massey, from Ashwood Nursery this year at the Hardy Plant Study Weekend in Vancouver this year.
