Honeymoon Lenten Rose | Romantic Getaway Hellebore -

Hellebores or Lenten roses are greatly cherished for their flowers which are the first to appear in Chicago gardens in late winter or early spring. Anna’s red hellebore grows into a low mound about 2 feet tall and wide. The foliage is leathery and dark green with finger-like clusters of serrated leaflets that are evergreen throughout the winter except in extremely cold locations.

Honeymoon Lenten Rose | Romantic Getaway Hellebore -

Hellebores or Lenten roses are greatly cherished for their flowers which are the first to appear in Chicago gardens in late winter or early spring. Anna’s red hellebore grows into a low mound about 2 feet tall and wide. The foliage is leathery and dark green with finger-like clusters of serrated leaflets that are evergreen throughout the winter except in extremely cold locations. Romantic Getaway features three inch five-petaled single flowers that are white with dramatic red markings on each petal.

This Honeymoon Lenten rose represents the best of Hans' single flowered hellebore hybrids. The wine-red blooms edged in pure white, make a romantic picture at the edge of woodland garden-especially over a blanket of late-winter snow. It simply displays an excellent bloom production and keeps flowering for a full six weeks with each plant blooming in abundance. You can’t get enough of their breathtaking flourish especially in shade gardens.

Getaway Helleborus thrives well in cool moist soils with high organic content, but are very adaptable only if the site is well-drained. Typically, they are planted in woodland settings under deciduous trees where they receive full sun in winter and early spring but are protected in hotter months. The entire plant contains chemicals that are toxic to humans but makes them unappealing to deer and other wildlife.

Unlike other perennials, these tough plants will live up to 50 years or more, and nothing is easier to grow! They bloom well even in heat, drought and cold and are untroubled by pests or disease. Growing into neat clumps 18 inches tall and 2-3 feet across, they slowly spread to make a wonderful ground cover for those difficult shady spots under trees.

Their excellent vigor, high bloom count, and rich color make them perfect for your home as they bring fond memories to the garden every spring when they bloom!
