Snow, sleet, icy rain. A little winter weather can be wonderful, but after a while, it gets to be too much. We yearn for the milder days of spring. Some plants get impatient, too, and surprise us with uplifting bouquets of flowers when it still seems way too early. Ivory Prince Hellebore is one such plant. Let it liven up the shady corners of your garden in late winter. A flourish of creamy-white blossoms (turning pink and then green) over evergreen foliage will confirm that spring is just around the bend and will give your spirits a much-needed boost.

The Story

In the wild, Hellebores are found primarily in eastern Europe, but they’re appreciated in gardens all over the temperate world. They’ve been treasured for ages for their enchanting late winter flowers. The most common types are also known as Lenten Roses (though they aren’t related to Roses), because in many areas they bloom around Lent. Another species is called Christmas Rose, because it blooms even earlier. Ivory Prince is a hybrid with some Christmas Rose parentage. It was developed by British nurseryman David Tristram as part of a complex breeding program. He introduced it to American gardeners in 2004.

The Details

Bring the joy of winter blossoms indoors! Nothing could be cheerier than a collection of Hellebore blooms on the table when it’s frosty outside. Ivory Prince Hellebores are best displayed in a bowl of water. Cut them with just a bit of stem attached and float them face-up like Waterlilies.

How to Grow

Give Ivory Prince Hellebore a shady site where it will receive no direct midday or afternoon sun. The soil should be rich and well-drained for best results. Hellebores like regular water, although they can be surprisingly drought tolerant once established. They are toxic in all their parts, which means that these fantastic woodland plants resist deer and other browsing creatures. Their leathery leaves are evergreen where winters aren’t too severe. If the foliage does become damaged, simply prune out the unsightly leaves. Ivory Prince is cold-hardy to at least -30ºF. Other than supplying a layer of mulch, you need to give it no special protection in cold weather.
