Lenten Rose 'Ivory Prince'
Latin Name: Helleborus 'Walhelivor'
Large dangling buttercup-type flowers of ivory streaked with rose and chartreuse emerge in late winter and spring, one of the first flowers to come up in cool weather and what a beautiful harbinger they are; great in woodland gardens and on shaded slopes.
Ivory Prince Hellebore is an herbaceous evergreen perennial with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.
This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should be cut back in late fall in preparation for winter. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
