Description / Helleborus Ivory Prince Hellebore

Helleborus Ivory Prince Hellebore is an evergreen perennial offering year-round interest. Heavy blooming from winter to mid-spring, Ivory Prince sets burgundy-pink buds that open into large, flat, green-streaked ivory flowers that later flush pink. Borne on long, sturdy, burgundy stems above glossy, blue-green leaves, the outward-facing to nodding flowers last a long time, sustain early pollinators, and make cute kitchen table bouquets or lovely additions to cut floral arrangements.

A vigorous herbaceous plant, Ivory Prince is a Helleborus hybrid, commonly called Lenten rose or hellebore. This hellebore has a tidy, compact, upright, clump-forming habit and slow growth rate. Shown to best effect when massed or grouped in beds, borders, and patio pots or under a high-branched deciduous tree or large shrub, protected from strong winter winds. The plant makes a lovely ground cover and will naturalize, slowly spreading via rhizomatous roots. It also self-seeds in ideal growing conditions but will not become invasive.

Cold hardy, easy to grow, and low maintenance, hellebore grows best in dappled to full shade locations with organically rich, moist, well-draining soil, having an alkaline pH. However, it grows well in most soils, including chalk, clay, and loam, and in most growing conditions. Once established, the plant is drought tolerant, but it will not tolerate extremely wet, waterlogged soils and only needs water in the hottest weather. It is deer and rabbit resistant.
