Honeymoon® Irish Luck Lenten Rose Care
Plant the Honeymoon® Irish Luck Lenten Rose in partial to full shade. This plant thrives in shady spots, like underneath trees or near buildings. The soil should be rich, neutral to slightly alkaline, and well drained. Amend the soil with organic compost or mulch when planting to support new growth. Plants grown in rich soil will not need fertilizer, but plants in low-quality soil will benefit from a balanced plant food applied in the spring. Water when the top few inches of the soil are dry.
Strong winds can damage the delicate foliage. Plant your Hellebore in a protected area to prevent wind damage, and remove ripped or torn leaves as necessary. The old foliage can be removed in early winter to allow the beautiful flowers to be visible. New foliage will emerge in spring.
Honeymoon® Irish Luck Lenten Rose Spacing
The Honeymoon® Irish Luck Lenten Rose stands 18 to 24 inches tall and wide. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart to create a full mass planting. Feature 2 Lenten Rose plants in a 12-inch container.
