Shotgun Wedding Hellebore

Shotgun Wedding Hellebore

Double white flowers a very heavy concentration of burgundy spots.

Arriving in early spring, hellebores often flower during the Christian season of Lent, which is how they got their common name of Lenten roses. Recent breeding advancements have resulted in the amazing varieties offered in these collections. For example, breeding that improved stem strength and modified bud placement on these stems allow blooms to face outward, where they can more easily be seen.

Blooms That Brighten Shady Spots
Experienced gardeners know hellebores are the perfect choice for extending the blooming season, since they combine well with other early blooming plants such as snowdrops. Long-lived hellebores keep looking fresh until other spring flowers take their place. They also are wonderful companions to such varieties as hostas and ferns that appear later in spring. Hellebores are must-haves for shady spots and patio pots, providing colour and interest when everything else is still enjoying its winter hibernation.

A Smart Investment for Your Garden
These reliable naturalizers grow easily in both heavy clay and sandy soils, as long as they are rich in organic matter. A yearly feeding of fertilizer, especially for those sown in sandy soil, will yield larger plants with more flowers. What's more, hellebores are drought tolerant and deer resistant, so they'll keep coming back year after year without fail. With this special offer, you have the opportunity to plant all six of these unique, hard-to-find varieties for much less than you may expect.

Meet the Man Behind These Hellebores
Renowned plant breeder Hans Hansen hybridized the six hellebore varieties offered in these collections. Hansen, who holds 179 U.S. plant patents, has also made improvements to hibiscus, heuchera, clematis, salvia and many other plants. He is the Director of New Plants at Walters Gardens in Zeeland, Michigan.
