This Helleborus hybrid is stunning and features 3-inch wide flowers that are a dark purple to slate color. The gorgeous flowers are offset by green foliage with toothed edges.

Helleborus is a shade-loving plant resistant to deer and rabbits, but the flowers attract bees. The Wedding Party Dashing Groomsman Lenten Rose will grow as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 9.
Wedding Party Dashing Groomsman Lenten Rose Care
Plant Lenten Rose in full shade. This plant can live in areas that receive up to 4 hours of sunlight. Underneath trees or near buildings or tall plants that filter sunlight are good locations. Hellebores prefer rich, well-draining soil that has a neutral or slightly acidic pH. Water this plant consistently for the first growing season, and once established, only water it during a dry spell.
Apply a layer of organic mulch around the plant in the spring to retain moisture in the soil. An application of slow-release fertilizer will further support the plant. Gusty wind can damage the delicate foliage, so select a protected area for this plant to call home.
Wedding Party Dashing Groomsman Lenten Rose Spacing
This herbaceous perennial will stand 18 to 24 inches tall and wide. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart from center to center for a continuous-looking planting.
