Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
HELLEBORUS x nigercors 'Pink Beauty'
Hybrid Lenten Rose, Pink Beauty Hybrid Lenten Rose
Showy late winter to early spring flowers and handsome evergreen foliage make this hybrid of Christmas rose (Helleborus niger) a valuable addition to the shady perennial garden. The pink-stained, ivory-white, buttercup-shaped flowers appear on leafy overwintering stems above lusty clumps of leathery, jaggedly hand-shaped leaves. The dark green leaves have toothed edges and silvery veins.
Hellebores prefer a rich, loamy, neutral to alkaline soil, and some protection from sun and drying winds. They often self-sow to form large colonies. Combine them with shade-loving bulbs, evergreen ferns, perennials and shrubs. Unlike many plants that bloom at this time of year, deer don't bother them.
