Helleborus 'Ballerina Ruffles'

Lenten Rose

Plant Type: Perennial
MORNING sun/AFTERNOON shade to FULL shade

This exquisite hellebore features large 3”, fluffy double flowers in pink shades ranging from light to bright lipstick pink, some with purple speckling.
The double flowered selections of WINTER THRILLERS™ hellebores have the added bonus of retaining their color for up to 12 weeks, long after the flowers are spent. You’ll hardly even notice when the flowers are finished because they just keep on looking fresh and lovely for so long. This feature greatly expands their shelf life and season of interest in the landscape.

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.
