Helleborus orientalis Pretty Ellen Pink - Hellebore
Availability: In stock
Pretty Ellen Pink is a beautiful variety of hellebore with pretty pink shaded flowers and a lovely soft golden centre. Every petal appears in delicate shades of pink and they bloom from February through April.
The stunning, pendent or outward-facing, saucer-shaped flowers appear from February to April above leathery, deep green leaves. This is a wonderful lenten rose variety and the flower colour is extremely unusual as well as beautiful. The dusky pastel pink flowers look particularly good when planted with Spring flowering bulbs such as narcissi and hyacinth. Like all Hellebores, it is a great ground cover plant for areas of dappled shade under deciduous trees and shrubs.
The leathery, evergreen leaves that provide all year round interest can be cut back old leaves in Late Winter, to really show off the flowers to maximum effect.
Looks wonderful planted in a container, or as part of a border mixed in with ferns or hostas. Grows best in a part shady spot and like all hellebores, prefers a heavy soil.
Top Quality bushy plants are supplied in approx. 1 litre pots, these really are outstanding value for money.
Perfect for adding brightness and garden interest when little else is showing colour, plant these now to guarantee the beautiful flowers every winter each and every year in to the future.
