‘Peppermint Ice’
“Lenten Rose”

Helleborus 'Peppermint Ice' "Lenten Rose" Helleborus 'Peppermint Ice' "Lenten Rose"

What gardener could possibly resist this “to-die-for” Hellebore? Certainly not me!  Very large 3” across double lotus-like blooms are edged in dark pink and delightfully veined and spotted. There’s some variability in shade of pink, but all are gorgeous. A bonus feature is that though the blooms are pendulous (like all Hellebores) the back sides of the petals are rose and veined as well. Tough, reliable and long-lived shade lovers - Hellebores tolerate poor soil, clay, drought and marauding deer. Highly valued for their Winter thru Spring bloom season as well. 2’ tall x 2’ high. ‘Peppermint Ice’ was created thru meticulous hand pollination over 20 years in the making by Marietta O'Byrne of Eugene, Oregon, who selected for flower size, number of bloom and superb vigor. Thanks Marietta!
