This beautiful hellebore was selected by the breeder for its vigorous growth rate, uniform crop production, and compact, upright habit. Unlike hellebores from seed, at least 85% will bloom the first year after vernalization.
From late winter through mid-spring, rich burgundy-pink buds open to beautiful ivory blossoms which take on rose and chartreuse tones as they age. They are outward facing and open flat for best display.
This selection has particularly attractive dark green foliage with silver veining which remains compact as it matures.
Hellebores are the harbingers of spring, blooming for six weeks or more beginning in late winter. They are often flowering during the Christian season of Lent, from which they get their common name, Lenten Rose. This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed.
They prefer partial shade and are hardy in zones 4-8.
