Description

A year-round evergreen beauty with early and long-lasting blooms

Experience the unique, year-round beauty of the Helleborus HGC® Ice N' Roses® Dark Picotee, an evergreen perennial from Jackson & Perkins. This unique plant blooms in the heart of winter, starting in December, with a profusion of creamy, butter-hued flowers adorned with a rich wine picotee. These charming blossoms, held aloft by sturdy stems above glossy, dark green leaves, provide a long-lasting display, support early pollinators, and make delightful additions to any kitchen table bouquet or floral arrangement.

As a variety of Helleborus x glandorfensis, also known as the Lenten rose or hellebore, the Ice N' Roses Dark Picotee grows at a moderate pace with an upright, mounding habit. Its palmate leaves create a striking display when not in bloom. It also thrives under the shelter of high-branched deciduous trees or large shrubs, protected from harsh winter winds while receiving sun. This plant serves as an attractive ground cover and will gradually spread. It can self-seed in optimal conditions but will not become invasive. It pairs beautifully with carex, thuja, heuchera, muscari, and narcissus.

Known for its cold hardiness, ease of growth, and low maintenance, the hellebore thrives in dappled to full shade locations with humus-rich, well-draining soil with an alkaline pH. It adapts well to a variety of soils and can withstand most growing conditions. An early spring fertilization is recommended. Once established, it is drought-tolerant, requiring watering only in the hottest weather. It does not tolerate waterlogged soils. The plant enters a dormant phase in summer, ceasing growth but maintaining its lush green foliage. The Ice N' Roses Dark Picotee is also resistant to deer and rabbits.
