The Wedding Party® Childhood Sweetheart Lenten Rose is one of the first plants to bloom in the spring, and this Hellebore hybrid starts the growing season off strong. The full flowers have alternating rows of yellow petals with such intense red veining that the petals appear more red than yellow. The reverse side of the petals is an alluring burgundy. The petals surround buttery yellow anthers, and the flowers are surrounded by green foliage with finely serrated edges. This Lenten Rose blooms in early to mid-spring.

Include this charming Lenten Rose in a mixed bed, landscape, or border. Create a stunning mass planting, or enjoy these blooms in a container where they make an excellent filler. Trim the stems to enjoy flowers in an arrangement. The flowers attract bees but are not favored by foragers like deer and rabbits. The Wedding Party® Childhood Sweetheart Lenten Rose can grow in zones 4 through 9, and the northern reaches of that range can have significant snowfall, so plant in an area where snowbanks will not pile up and delay blooming.

Wedding Party® Childhood Sweetheart Lenten Rose Care

Part to full shade is vital for Wedding Party® Childhood Sweetheart Lenten Rose. Plant it alongside a building that will shield the sun or in the shade of an evergreen. This plant craves rich, loamy soil that is moist and well drained. A neutral to slightly alkaline pH is best. Give the plant about an inch of water weekly, depending on rainfall. Established plants are drought tolerant and can handle longer periods between watering. Apply a balanced fertilizer each spring.

Remove spent flowers at the end of the bloom cycle for a neat appearance. Leave the greenery in place until spring, and prune before new growth appears.

Wedding Party® Childhood Sweetheart Lenten Rose Spacing

Wedding Party® Childhood Sweetheart Lenten Rose reaches 18 to 24 inches tall and wide. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart to create a consistent and full planting.

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.
