This especially vigorous and floriferous new strain bears large 7 cm , white flowers with extensive deep pinkish red veining, centers, and picotee edges. Each flower has a slightly different combination of white and red pigments as if they are splashed with "pink fizz". As the flowers age, they retain their veining, remaining attractive over a long period. Mature four year old plants typically bear an incredible 50-60 flowers apiece! Like all WINTER THRILLER™ hellebores, this one has beautiful dark green, bushy foliage that looks great all year.

Growing and Maintenance Tips
Despite their reputation of being hard to grow, Hellebores are not fussy plants. Give them rich, moist organic soil and shade from hot afternoon sun during the summer. They can even tolerate short periods of drought. Hellebores are evergreen so after the plants are actively growing trim back any foliage that has been damaged in the winter. Hellebores are poisonous so do not consume any part of the plant.
