Helleborus × hybridus Royal Heritage™

Lenten Rose

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.256.370

The Lenten Rose is one of the earliest perennials to bloom, and extremely easy to grow. Plants produce a bushy clump of thick, leathery evergreen leaves. Flower stalks burst from the ground in late winter. This terrific strain produces blooms in shades from white through to pink, red, maroon and near black. Site these where they will stay for many years, since the plants resent being disturbed. Trimming the old leaves to the ground in late winter will make the show of flowers more easily seen. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten/Skin irritant.
