First blush, the FrostKiss™ Penny's Pink® Hellebore (Helleborus x 'EPBRD01') is a late winter and early spring perennial darling! The soft smoky-pinkish plum and chartreuse blossoms shyly nod down on their tall, slender purple stems, often popping up right through the melting late winter snows!
Penny's Pink® forms tight, compact mounds of dark green foliage with lighter green veins, giving these compact gems a two-tone effect. The blooms are a treat for early emerging pollinators and the shower of yellow stamen at the centers of each blossom is a welcome landing pad!
The FrostKiss™ series of flowering Hellebore have been selected for their tolerance of more sun in cooler summers than their shade-loving counterparts. Adding a breath of fresh color to the dreary winter landscape, while brightening spring borders. Often, in mild winters, the foliage can remain evergreen!
Hellebores are ideal companions with early spring bulbs and for planting among later emerging perennials and shrubs. The burst of fresh color is a welcome sight, and the later arriving foliage of the other plants is a welcome shade for these shade-loving darlings! Intersperse throughout perennial and cottage borders where they will slowly spread and ramble among the other plants.
Penny's Pink® is also fantastic long-stemmed blooms for bouquets, so be sure to include a few extras in your garden and planters for the first floral arrangements of the year. Deadheading keeps the blooms returning most of the spring for an extended flowering time! Shade gardens and Zen gardens alike benefit from the elegance and classic beauty of these woodland wildflowers.
Hellebores tolerate full sun in mild summers, preferring filtered sun and partial shade, even full shade in the hottest of its growing zone range. Plant in a well-drained, cool, moist soil that won’t dry out and mulch the bed very well. Deadhead for more return blooms.
FrostKiss™ Penny's Pink® Hellebore will help chase away the winter blues! Order this and other early spring bulbs, plants and shrubs at NatureHills.com to help get your gardening year started off right!
