Why plant Pink Frost Lenten Rose?
We don't expect a lot out of the garden in winter. Mostly it's a time to look through seed catalogs and dream about what to plant next year. But there are a few extraordinary plants that wait for this quiet time of the year to strut their stuff. Pink Frost Hellebore is one of those brave souls. As early as December in very mild climates, it puts on an amazing show of profuse pink blossoms. Hardy to at least -20°, it flourishes in colder regions, too, blooming later but still well before it seems possible for flowers to be out. It's fragrant, too!
In the wild, Hellebores are found primarily in eastern Europe. The most common types are also known as Lenten Rose (though they aren't related to Roses), because in many areas, they bloom around Lent. Another species is called Christmas Rose, because it blooms even earlier. Pink Frost is a selection with Christmas Rose in its background, along with some other, lesser known species. It belongs to the Helleborus Gold Collection® (HGC) of German plant breeder Josef Heuger. In his HGC work, Heuger has striven to develop plants with intriguing colors, extended bloom times, and good vigor. Hellebore flowers tend to nod, so another goal has been to produce outward-facing blossoms that make a showier display.
How to use Pink Frost Lenten Rose in the landscape?
Bring the joy of winter blossoms indoors! Nothing could be cheerier than a collection of Hellebore blooms on the table when it's frosty outside. Pink Frost Hellebores are best displayed in a bowl of water. Cut them with just a bit of stem attached and float them face-up like Waterlilies.
Hardiness Zone: 3-8
How To Plant Pink Frost Lenten Rose
Give Pink Frost Hellebore a shady site where it will receive no direct midday or afternoon sun. The soil should be rich and well-drained for best results. Hellebores like regular water, although they can be surprisingly drought tolerant once established. They are toxic in all their parts, which means that these fantastic woodland plants resist deer and other browsing creatures. Their leathery leaves are evergreen where winters aren't too severe. If the foliage does become damaged, simply prune out the unsightly leaves. Pink Frost is cold-hardy to at least -20°. Other than supplying a layer of mulch, it needs no special protection in cold weather.
How To Water
Water as soon as they arrive! Lenten Roses need to be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil for proper establishment in the landscape.
