Plant Type: Perennials

Fully double, large three inch blossoms are a contrasting blend of white and deep magenta pink tones with creamy yellow stamens.  This especially vigorous selection bears forty to sixty flowers on mature four year old plants in early through mid-spring.

Like all WINTER THRILLERS hellebores, these doubles have beautiful dark green, bushy foliage that looks great all year.  This one’s a must-have for spring impulse sales!

 

Hellebores are the harbingers of spring, blooming 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.  This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed.
