Lenten Roses (Helleborus x hybrida) have long ceased to be the insider tip for garden enthusiasts. Featuring a sheer unlimited range of shapes and colours, they also make their appearance in the cold season and flower from January well into spring.
Lenten Roses (H. x hybridus) are often incorrectly called Helleborus x orientalis. However, they stem from crossings between the oriental hellebore (Helleborus orientalis) and various other species from this genus. Their parents are mainly found in Southeast Europe, the Balkans and along the Black Sea coasts.
Like all other varieties in the Helleborus Gold Collection®, Spring Promise® Lenten Roses meet the highest genetic standards in order to secure their place as brilliant highlights of colour in people's gardens. The Spring Promise® Elly℗ Lenten Rose is a very early bloomer that produces elegant double flowers.
