Description / Helleborus Frostkiss® Pippa's Purple® Hellebore

Pippa's Purple® Hellebore, a distinguished member of the Frostkiss® series, stands as an evergreen perennial that promises year-round interest and blooms heavily, continuously, and uniformly from late winter to mid-spring, Pippa's Purple blankets the landscape with masses of smoky dark purple-pink flowers adorned with deep burgundy speckles. These enchanting blooms rest gracefully on long, robust dark purple stems, rising above a basal rosette of dark green leaves intricately marbled with white. The rounded, nodding to outward-facing flowers not only endure for an extended period but also serve as delightful accents in kitchen table bouquets or contribute to the allure of cut floral arrangements. Rich in nectar, these flowers play a crucial role in providing emerging bees with an important food source early in the season.

As a Helleborus hybrid, commonly known as Lenten rose or hellebore, Frostkiss Pippa's Purple embodies herbaceous elegance and is characterized by a slow growth rate and an upright, mounding habit. Its beauty is magnified when massed or grouped in beds, borders, and patio pots. This versatile plant also creates a charming ground cover, slowly expanding through rhizomatous roots without invasive tendencies. It even self-seeds in ideal growing conditions without posing a threat of becoming invasive. Placing it beneath a high-branched deciduous tree or large shrub, shielded from winter winds, enhances its appeal.

This cold-hardy perennial is a testament to simplicity, thriving on ease of growth and demanding minimal maintenance. Optimal conditions include dappled shade locations with organically rich, moist, well-draining soil, maintaining a neutral to alkaline pH. While it adapts well to various soils, including chalk, clay, and loam; flourishes in diverse growing conditions; and resists drought once established, it will not tolerate extremely wet, waterlogged soils. A protective fall mulch will help safeguard the plant during winter. Frostkiss Pippa's Purple Hellebore proudly stands up to deer and rabbits, making it a resilient as well as captivating addition to your garden landscape.
