‘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 & delightfully veined & 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 & veined as well. Tough, reliable & long-lived shade lovers - Hellebores tolerate poor soil, clay, drought & 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 & superb vigor. Thanks Marietta!
