Rio Carnival Helleborus (Lenten Rose)

$14.99

Try the lovely single-flowered selections of the HONEYMOON® Series from Walters Gardens hybridizer Hans Hansen. In his breeding work, he selects for plants with notable vigor, showy floral displays with large numbers of blossoms per plant, and rich flower colors.
'Rio Carnival' bears 2½-3”, single light yellow flowers with heavy burgundy red speckling.
Hellebores are the harbingers of spring, blooming for six weeks or more beginning in late winter. They are often flowering during the Christian season of Lent, from which they get their common name, Lenten Rose. This is the perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed.

Care

Zones 4 - 9. Full shade - partial shade. Morning or evening sun preferred. Hot afternoon sun will scorch this plant. Soil should be moist but well drained, never soggy. Blooms early - mid-spring. 

Growth Habit

Toxicity

Toxic. Sap is a skin irritant. Do not ingest. Keep away from children and pets.
