Helleborus Ivory Prince, Lenten RoseSKU: n/a.
A charming royal, Ivory Prince Lenten Rose, Helleborus, graces us with burgundy pink buds open to outward-facing, ivory blossoms streaked with rose and chartreuse. Compact dark-green foliage stays compact.
Lenten Roses are wonderful additions to the shade garden or naturalized woodland garden. With their dark, thick, evergreen foliage they look fantastic in and out of bloom. In late winter or early spring their nodding 3-4″ cup-shaped flowers emerge. Flowers dry on the plants, sometimes persisting for months. They are easy to grow in average soil and are tolerant of drought once established. A long lived perennial, Lenten Rose resists pests, deer and rabbits. Old foliage can be cut back in late winter before new flowers emerge. Poisonous.
