Fluffy 2-3" double-petaled blossoms in gorgeous shades of pink, often with purple speckle detailing, brighten early spring gardens over several months because spent blooms hold their color so well. This vigorous seed strain features exceptionally large flowers and thick, sturdy stems.
The breakthrough colors in this American series are the result of 15 years of patient hand-crossing, using the largest flowering, most vigorous Hellebores. Grown from seed, the Winter Thriller™ plants produce exceptionally beautiful, outfacing flowers that stand tall on sturdy stems as thick as pencils.
The genus Helleborus contains about 20 species of perennials that bloom in early winter in mild climates and in late winter or early spring where the soil freezes hard, which makes them either the last or the first flowers in the garden. They require a moist but well-drained site under the shade of trees. Take care to amend the soil with plenty of organic matter, such as well-aged leaf mold and compost. You'll be rewarded with long-lived, deer- and vole-resistant plants that will spread nicely on their own. For more information on growing and care, click on Growing Guide.
