Like the muted tones of a fine watercolor, the petals of H. Pink Frost emerge in multiple shades of pale to rosy pinks. Early, long-blooming, outward-facing flowers rise above the foliage for your viewing pleasure. Petals mature to a deeper rose. From the Gold Collection, the striking foliage is silvery green with red stems.

Float flowers in clear bowls for an elegant centerpiece. Helleborus herald the coming of spring with lovely nodding cup-shaped flowers. The harbingers of spring, Helleborus bloom 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.

Helleborus General Information

Helleborus were named the Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year in 2005. They are perfect perennials when you need a splash of color as you weary of winter's grip. Lovely nodding cup-shaped flowers herald the coming of spring. Avoid dry soil with full sun. Good evergreen groundcover.

Helleborus Plant Care

Prefers humus-rich, well-drained soil and regular watering. Spent flower heads can be cut back to promote new foliage growth and to prevent too many volunteer seedlings. Many plantlets will form around base of parent plant and will bloom around the third year if left alone. Division is generally not needed but can be performed in early spring if desired.
