You be enthralled as you track the progress of the burgundy-pink buds that open to front-facing flowers. Unlike most other drooping Hellebores, Ivory Prince has creamy blooms that are held up proudly on reddish stems.

They tell a wonderful garden story around the marriage of strength and tenderness. Blooming when the air is still frosty, these vigorous, waxy flowers bring an ethereal look to your early spring landscape.

The dark buds open to ivory, and as the petals age become spotlit by light pink and green tones. These cunning flowers draw your attention time and time again!

Even the shiny evergreen foliage is very pretty. Deeply lobed leaves remain leathery and green all year for a fantastic accent.

Ivory Prince Lenten Rose is an English complex hybrid with a nice upright form. The blooms last for months in a sheltered spot, as it will put up with just about anything Mother Nature throws at it.

They're even resistant to deer and rabbits. Once well-rooted, they display tolerance for periodic drought.

How to Use Ivory Prince Lenten Rose in the Landscape

Although they'll perk up your shady areas with steadfast color all year...no one grows Lenten Rose for the leaves. Sure, they are shiny and interesting and bring a soothing sophistication.

But it's the cup-shaped, creamy-white flowers people really crave, isn't it? Create a star feature of your early garden with several planted together in a grouping.

Space them 10 inches apart for a tight composition. Let them decorate the base of a tall Witch Hazel shrub near your patio or entryway.

Or, plant that shade-loving grouping at the end of a garden path to create a fun destination after a late winter walk. They'll also be exquisite as a patio container plant!

Ivory Prince Lenten Rose breathes new life at the shaded base of mature evergreen trees. With their hardy nature, they are very useful as part of a woodland garden planting.

Try underplanting them beneath deep-rooted deciduous trees such as Oaks, Redbuds or Crabapples. Include many dozens of early spring-flowering bulbs from Snowdrops to Crocus to Daffodil, Hyacinth and Tulip for a fancy Spring Garden!

This classy variety makes a very thoughtful gift plant for the gardener in your life. You'll get a bang out of how excited they'll be about this special cultivar...and about how fast they'll think of the perfect place to tuck it into their garden.
