Upward-facing blooms give the Gold Collection of hellebores, including Pink Frost, a special beauty. Flowers appear from mid- to late winter, and blossom bracts linger well into spring. Pink Frost features shades of pink, rose, blush and white, which pairs beautifully with burgundy stems. Deer-resistant plants grow 12 to 15 inches tall by 24 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 5-9.
Unlike most hellebores, or Lenten roses, Gold Collection® ‘Pink Frost’ holds its blooms upright, so their white, pink and deep rose colors are easier to see in winter. The plants have attractive burgundy stems. Use these deer resistant plants as groundcovers or perennials in shady spots.
Give your garden a beautiful harbinger of spring with ‘Confetti Cake’ Lenten rose. Flowers typically open in late winter, lingering through the Lenten season. This perennial blooms for six weeks or more, opening 2.5- to 3-inch-wide blossoms on plants that deer and rabbits tend to leave alone. Hardy in Zones 4-9. Botanical name: Helleborus ‘Confetti Cake’
Hellebores are tough little plants that shake off ice and snow and flower from late winter to early spring. Hardy in zones 6-9, they prefer a shady garden spot, and once they're established, they're drought tolerant. Try them with other shade-lovers, such as ferns, hostas and campanulas. Hellebores are sometimes called Lenten roses, because they bloom around the Lent season.
