If you can't wait to share the honeymoon feeling of spring in your garden then  HONEYMOON® helleborus is a plant you must absolutely own. Did the ground hog see his shadow? It doesn't matter - hellebores grow and bloom in late winter just to make you feel special. Was the DJ at your wedding a bust? Don't worry the HONEYMOON® Series won't let you down.

Tropical sunset looks the part, it combines creamy yellow flowers with streaks of burgundy, red and pink along the rim of the flower. Looks great on it's own, but combines particularly well with white, dark or pink companions.

The plants in the HONEYMOON® series were specifically selected for vigor, rich color, and abundant flowers. Hellebores bloom in very early spring/late winter for six weeks or more. Because they often flower during the Christian Lent, they have been given the common name Lenten Rose. Due to their shade loving nature, hellebores are perfect for under trees and places where many sun loving perennials don't thrive - they are great at filling these spaces because they spread through an extensive root system. Hellebores look wonderful planted in window boxes or raised beds and will provide a burst of much needed color in these areas early in the season. They are also provide an important food source for pollinators during the late winter.

Helleborus Tropical Sunset - Leten Rose

Hellebores are low-maintenance and disease and pest resistant. This makes them very enjoyable to grow and care for. In the late winter it's best to trim back last year's growth to enhance production. Hellebores prefer moist, well drained soil high in organic matter, but will also grow well in sandy to clay soil. Hellebores can tolerate some draught and a range of soil PH. You should protect hellebores from afternoon sun, as shade loving plants they work well under trees and other places where many perennials don't thrive. WARNING: Hellebores are poisonous. Do not consume any part of the plant!
