Lenten Rose is an early-blooming perennial with some of the showiest flowers. Even after the blooms fade, the lush greenery provides color and vitality to a space. The Wedding Party® Shotgun Wedding Lenten Rose has 3-inch wide double flowers. The petals come to a gentle point and feature saturated burgundy spots with crisp white along the margins. This Helleborus hybrid blooms in early spring, making it one of the season's first flowers.
This low-maintenance beauty does well in borders and can be used to create striking mass plantings. Feature this Helleborus hybrid in a container so you can enjoy more flexible placement options and make sure to trim some of the blooms to feature as cut flowers. This upright filler is a favorite of bees, but not so much with foraging animals like deer and rabbits. Grow the Lenten Rose as a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 9.
Wedding Party® Shotgun Wedding Lenten Rose Care
Plant the Lenten Rose in an area with part to full shade. About 4 hours of daylight per day is plenty for this stunner. This plant has medium water needs, and while new plants need to keep to a routine water schedule, established plants are somewhat drought-tolerant. Rich, neutral to mildly alkaline soil is preferred.
Feed the plant using a balanced fertilizer or top dress the soil with organic compost throughout the growing season. Remove any damaged growth as needed to keep the plant looking its best.
Wedding Party® Shotgun Wedding Lenten Rose Spacing
Mature plants will reach 18 to 24 inches tall and cover about 24 inches wide. Plants can comfortably grow right up against one another, so space Lenten Roses 24 inches center to center for a lush low hedge-like planting. Leave a clearance when planting near a building or tree.
