If you can't wait to share the excitement of spring in your garden then WEDDING PARTY™ helleborus is a plant you must absolutely own. Did the ground hog see his shadow? It doesn't matter - helebores grow and bloom in late winter just to make you feel special. Perhaps its always the bridesmaid and never the bride. Who cares? Because 'Blushing Bridesmaid' steals the show with its white and wine red blooms in the early spring garden.

The plants in the WEDDING PARTY™ series were specifically selected for vigor, rich color, abundant flowers and beautiful double blooms. 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, helebores 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 WEDDING PARTY 'Blushing Bridesmaid' - Lenten 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!

Very nice plant. Nice size and packed well. Thank you.

Healthy beautiful plant

This is my second purchase of the ‘Blushing Bridesmaid’ helleborus from NBN and my third purchase from them overall. All plants they have ever sent have been expertly packed, promptly shipped, and received in excellent condition. This plant had a well established root system and beautiful healthy leaves. Summers are brutal here in Atlanta, so I planted my hellebores in large terracotta pots and placed them on a shady veranda, where they are currently thriving. So, thank you, New Blooms, for these wonderful specimens!
