Helleborus Frostkiss™ Penny's Pink

The Frostkiss™ Hellebores series are some of the first plants to bloom in the spring. Although all Hellebore demand attention, the Frostkiss Hellebores will earn a special place in your heart. Beautiful, tough and easy to grow, their large, forward-facing blooms flower the first year and provide a lasting show of color. Although the Frostkiss series are earlier blooming perennials, they are late blooming Hellebore. These are not timed for Christmas like the niger types but are more timed for early spring, Feb-April, so they will fit right in with other perennial products. One of the most exciting new Hellebores on the market! Penny's Pink comes to us after 15 long years of breeding work, well worth the wait in our opinion. Penny's Pink is named after highly acclaimed garden writer Penelope Hobhouse. Penny will stun you with her deep pink flowers from January till April on red stems and unique pink marbled foliage. Marbled foliage has been seen before in the x ericsmithii types but never the colored marbling, Penny's Pink represents the very latest in breeding technologies for Hellebores.
