If you’re looking for a plant that blooms from late winter well into spring, maybe even into early summer, hellebore is the answer. Honeymoon Rome in Red hellebore is from the famed hybridizer Hans Hansen and it does all that and more. It’s sometimes called Lenten rose because it blooms near the Christian Lent season. This shade-loving, evergreen perennial has outward-facing single flowers – in a beautiful range of deep maroon to wine red and are 3 to 4 inches wide. The plant is 18 to 24 inches tall and wide.

Honeymoon Rome in Red can be used as an evergreen ground cover. Intersperse among shrubs or mix in the perennial garden. You can also plant under a shade tree, but select a spot that will have full sun through winter until the trees leaf out. Cut a few flowers and float them in a bowl for a lovely table decoration. In spring, you might find hellebores in garden centers. They are easy to work in spring pots and can be transplanted to the garden at the end of the season. Once established, hellebores are drought tolerant. Beware: all parts of hellebore are poisonous.

Honeymoon® Rome in Red Lenten Rose Care

Protect from strong western or southern sun. Water regularly until plants are established. Hellebores prefer organically rich, moist planting sites, but readily adapt to sandy or clay soil. They also are salt tolerant, making them an option for planting near pavement that is treated with deicers in winter.

About the only maintenance is removing winter damaged leaves, as needed. It’s possible the plant will drop seed, which will germinate into new plants. To promote this, apply a good layer of mulch. The seedlings will emerge from the mulch. Transplant the babies, if desired. Although hellebores self sow, they are not considered invasive.

Honeymoon® Rome in Red Lenten Rose Spacing

Space about 18 inches apart, center on center. Use as filler in a spring, summer or winter container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
