DescriptionHelleborus—Winter's most colourful guests!
Spotting richly hued blooms and evergreen foliage against the bleak backdrop of winter is a welcome and rare sight indeed! The very first flowers of the season, helleborus (or hellebores) are a must-have for shady spots and patio pots, because they provide colour and interest when everything else is still enjoying its winter hibernation.
Known as the harbingers of spring, helleborus are often flowering during the Christian season of Lent, which is how they got their common name, Lenten roses. Years of careful breeding has produced an even rarer type of helleborus with showy, double blooms that face upward on sturdy stems—these are helleborus like you've never seen before! The 2½-3½" flowers are larger than most, and are held atop strong, non-drooping stems that can reach up to 24" tall. These long-lived plants are reliable and deer resistant, so they'll keep coming back year after year without fail.
Enjoy Three Months of Colourful Blooms
Experienced gardeners know that helleborus are the perfect choice for extending the blooming season, since they produce colourful flowers as early as January in some zones—and keep looking fresh until other spring flowers take their place. But what many don't know is that the colourful "petals" are actually leaf-like sepals, which is how the blooms are able to stay "frozen in time." This exciting double helleborus collection will perk up your winter landscape year after year, keeping its exquisite colour for up to 12 weeks!
This collection includes 1 each of following varieties:
True Love: Pretty maroon red petals deepen to dark merlot on the edges. A must-have for winter bouquets!
Confetti Cake: Wedding-white flowers feature unexpected burgundy speckles that complement the darker varieties in the collection.
First Dance: Packed with petals in varying shades of yellow, with a maroon picotee edge and veining.
Dark and Handsome Rich maroon black blooms really pop against the bleak and sometimes snowy winter landscape.
