Helleborus x hybridus [‘Winter Jewels Series’] ‘Golden Sunrise’ is yet another introduction from esteemed breeder Marietta O’Byrne of Oregon. Her entire ‘Winter Jewels’ series is guaranteed to make a helleborephile of anyone who is lucky enough to offer these stunning beauties a home.
With a brilliant yellow gene pool, this beguiling beauty never seems to replicate itself completely, allowing for a wonderful spectrum of yellows in the Spring garden! The odd few appear as a solid yellow, but most exhibit red veining and or a desirable red picotee edging! Like many others within the genus, the flowers [ 2-4” across] are downward facing, but a pleasant surprise is that the reverse of many of the petals include a warm red veining! Since I’m currently hooked on this wonderful woodland, shaded garden necessity, you can expect to find ‘Golden Sunrise’ on the benches of LittleTree this Spring!
