Joshua hellebore is a very early variety bred from German breeder Josef Heuger. Its flowers are small to mid-sized: 4-5 cm across, pure white with yellow stamens in the centre, and in warm winters come out in profusion from early December until February. In cold winters blooming starts from late winter. Evergreen leaves are leathery and deep green and form a compact clump.
Hellebore likes heavy, evenly moist, neutral to alkaline, rich in humus soil in dappled shade or filtered sun. This hybrid will prefer at least half a day with direct sunlight. Fertilising will increase flowering and help the leaves remain strong and nice throughout the winter.
