Mathiasella are herbaceous evergreen perennial plants that closely resemble the popular and much-loved hellebore. Originally from Mexico, Mathiasella are named after a Californian plants woman who discovered it in 1954. In May, attractive and architectural stems are topped by hooded, nodding flowers that change colour from jade-green to pale pink throughout their flowering period. They are best suited to flower beds, borders and containers within a tropical or informal garden setting. These plants are also great for cutting and drying. You should expect to see Mathiasella grow to an approximate height of 1.5m (5’) and a spread of 40cm (16”).
Mathiasella are best planted in well-drained soil of sand, chalk, loam and clay. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade where they will thrive to optimum effect. Amend the planting area with a generous amount of organic matter and compost as this will improve drainage and growing conditions. Dig a hole that will accommodate the overall depth and width of your Mathiasella and gently place into the planting area. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil and to encourage a healthy root system.
These plants will tolerate low temperatures but will require protection from winter wet and extremely cold climates. During spring, apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plant to retain moisture levels and suppress weeds whilst supplementing the soil with additional nutrients. They require an intermediate watering schedule which should be increased during periods of drought.
