Hellebore 'HGC Ice 'n' Roses Red', Lenten Rose 'HGC Ice 'n' Roses Red'


Noted for its long blooming season, Helleborus 'HGC Ice 'n' Roses Red' (Hellebore) features single, rounded, rich ruby-red blossoms adorned with a crown of creamy stamens. Unlike most hellebores, the flowers face outward attracting interest. Opening from dark purple buds, these charming and dainty beauties bloom heavily for weeks from late winter to mid spring. They rise on sturdy stems above a most attractive leathery foliage that can be admired all year long. Showy and long-lasting, ideal to brighten the shade garden!

  • Grows in a bushy, upright clump, up to 12-15 in. tall and wide (30-37 cm).
  • Performs best in sun to part shade, in rich, humusy, moist, alkaline, well-drained soils. Lenten Roses are very tolerant and will grow well in most soils as long as the ground is not extremely dry or stagnantly waterlogged. Select a sheltered site to protect them from cold winter winds. Deer resistant!
  • Easy to grow, this plant is a welcomed addition to shady borders, containers, under trees or large shrubs, woodland gardens or naturalized areas. Plant in groups for best visual impact. Lovely groundcover when massed
  • May be affected by hellebore black death, hellebore leaf spot, slugs and aphids.
  • Remove faded flower stems (unless you require seed) to promote new growth and for a neat appearance.
  • Propagate by division after flowering in late spring
  • Ingestion may cause severe discomfort; skin irritant.
