Helleborus 'Mrs. Betty Ranicar' - Hellebore

Helleborus 'Mrs Betty Ranicar' is named after a fine Tasmanian plantswoman, and is an orientalis hybrid that produces crowds of fantastic, heavily double, snowy white blooms that will be a delight amongst vivid spring bulbs in the shady border. Be one of the first to grow such a top quality double Helleborus from seed!

Helleborus is one of the most enchanting spring bloomers. The plant is not difficult to grow, but does require some attention. Helleborus mainly grow in the spring and fall. Due to the heat, these plants hardly grow in the summer. By planting them in fall, winter, you provide the best growing conditions for them, which might help the bud count in early spring. Do not fertilize Helleborus during the summer months, since they are in their resting period. These varieties can be grown in direct sunlight, but prefer some shade. These evergreen varieties should be protected from harsh winds in the wintertime.

Stories about Lenten/Christmas Roses are countless. In medieval times, it was considered a weapon against witches, madness and evil spirits. Lenten/Christmas Roses deserve a place in every garden, not only because of their supposed power, but because they bloom for a long time, early in winter, when the weather is cool and most other flowers are still dormant. They like moist loamy soil with lime and leaf mold. We like them as ground covers for deciduous shrubs, conifers, or broad-leafed evergreens, and when possible plant them in an elevated spot to admire their nodding flowers.

Place the pot on a shaded, cool windowsill and keep evenly moist, not wet or dry. In the spring plant the Lenten Rose outside in the partial shade.
