    Exciting New Coloring on Blooms that Start in Winter!

     Flowers up to 4 Months – When Nothing Else is Blooming!
     Thrives in Those Difficult Shady Spots
     Tough and Undemanding -- Nothing is Easier to Grow!
    •  Outstanding for its Sheer Number of Blooms!
    Brighten Your Garden with New and Unusual Colors from the Very Latest breeding!
    It took years for breeder Hans Hansen to perfect his line of Lenten Roses, and the result is outstanding! These plants are exceptionally vigorous, so they produce unusually large numbers of blooms per plant, blooms in a spectacular color combination. Yellow coloring has long been a holy grail for Helleborus lovers, rare and hard to find; Rio Carnival not only has shades of yellow, from creamy butter yellow to bright gold, but it also has dark maroon markings making the yellow tones much more interesting than a solid color. We were totally awed when we saw this unusual and breathtaking beauty!
    Blooms up to 4 months – in Winter!
    These spectacular 2 to 2.5 inch blooms begin in late winter and earliest spring, when everything else in the garden is sleeping. You’ll even see them peeking through a late snow, brightening your day and telling you that spring is right around the corner. They stay colorful throughout spring, only fading when the weather warms up for summer. As an added bonus, the evergreen foliage, rich green and resembling small palm leaves, keeps adding interest to your garden even when blooming season is long over.
    Healthy, Hardy, Easy to Grow, and Deer-Resistant, too!
    These tough plants will live up to 50 years of more, and nothing is easier to grow! They thrive in most any soil, even heavy clay; they laugh at heat, drought and cold; and, they 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. This Lenten Rose also makes a delightful focal point in the shady perennial bed when they bloom in the winter to early spring. And you don’t need to worry about finding your plants decimated by critters – deer and rabbits don’t bother them.
    Growing Tips:
    Though Lenten Roses (Helleborus) grow equally well in the North or the South, they do require dappled to full shade. They tolerate drought quite well and are not picky as to soil type, but, as with most perennials, they will grow most lushly if given a rich soil with plenty of organic matter for good drainage.
