New in the ‘Joie de vivre’ Series!
Het Wilgenbroek enjoyed a very busy IPM Essen. Here they were showing the new Helleborus ‘Valentina’ which is new in the ‘Joie de vivre’ series. This is a red flowering Helleborus orientalis, with Valentine's day in mind! Het Wilgenbroek's Thierry Van Paemel is pictured with this on their stand.
Flower for Spring Gardens
The plant is bred by Het Wilgenbroek and distributed by Microflor, in the same way as Victoria. It is a very strong garden plant that brings flower into the spring garden. This Helleborus can also be used for decoration indoor or on the balcony/ terrace where is will flower for more than one month.
Best Niger Type on Market
Helleborus niger ‘Mon Blanc’ is simply the best of the niger type variety on the market. This flowers from October until March and has very big white flowers above its beautiful green leaves. Thierry Van Paemel commented “ This is the first good garden Helleborus niger for the garden. An ideal plant which is also very good for either balcony and terrace. It can even be used as a cutflower.
Helleborus niger ‘Mon Blanc’ is a selection of Het Wilgenbroek and also sold both as a young and flowering plant by this Belgian based breeder.
