Helleborus 'Flower Girl' (Hellebore)

Hellebore 'Flower Girl', Lenten Rose 'Flower Girl', Wedding Party Series


Helleborus ‘Flower Girl’ is a Lenten Rose with large, double blush to light pink flowers, up to 3 in. across (7 cm). Blooming heavily in early to mid-spring, these nodding beauties rise on sturdy stems and contrast well with the glossy, dark green, evergreen foliage. Showy and long-lasting, this Lenten Rose provides year-round interest and is ideal to brighten areas of dappled shade under deciduous trees and shrubs!

This Hellebore belongs to the Wedding Party Series, which is noted for its double-flowered selections, available in numerous, beautiful color shades.

  • Grows in a bushy, upright clump, up to 18-24 in. tall and wide (45-60 cm).
  • Performs best in partial shade to full shade in fertile, humus-rich, moist, neutral to alkaline, well-drained soils. Avoid soils prone to drying out or staying wet.
  • Select a sheltered site to protect your hellebores from cold winter winds.
  • Easy to grow, this plant is a welcomed addition to shady borders, containers, under trees or large shrubs, woodland gardens, or cottage gardens. Plant in groups for the best visual impact.
  • Hellebore flowers provide valuable nectar for early pollinators. Hellebore is not generally a plant that deer or other animals seek out to eat, but if other food sources are scarce, they may come along and make a meal out of your Hellebore.
  • No serious pest or disease issues. Keep an eye out for aphids, snails, hellebore leaf spot, and hellebore black death.
  • Remove faded flower stems (unless you require seed) to promote new growth and for a neat appearance.
  • Ingestion may cause severe discomfort, skin irritant. Wear gloves and other protective equipment when handling.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses, toxic to humans.
