Helleborus 'Jacob'

Lenten Rose

Plant Type: Perennial
Exposure: Morning Sun / Afternoon Shade  Shade Tolerant  

‘HGC Jacob’ is an extremely early bloomer, flowering from mid-November through January, just in time for holiday sales. This is the perfect flowering plant to sell along with pointsettias and Christmas cactus for November-December sales, with the added benefit of it being a hardy perennial that can be enjoyed for years to come. Numerous pure white, upright to outward facing, 2-3” wide flowers are produced on strong, dark stems. They turn rose pink as they mature in cool temperatures, and light green in warm temperatures.
The shiny, dark green, serrated foliage forms a uniform, compact mound.





Landscape Application:

Group or mass under trees and woodland gardens where flowers can be viewed in early spring.

Helleborus 'Jacob' Plant Care:

Remove tattered winter foliage in early spring. Prefers rich, moist, well drained soils and wind protection.

USDA Hardiness Zone: Zone 5 (-20/-10F)
