Helleborus x hybridus 'Walhelivor'

The Lenten Roses you will love if you ever have the chance to discover them. They have very understated beauty and have an amazing, subtle flower.
The Helleborus x hybridus 'Walhelivor' or Ivory Prince Lenten Rose is one of my favorites. There are few truly green flowers in nature. This one will make you fall in love with planting for contrast. Not to mention, it does well in shade and thrives with little attention. This is a great flowering perennial to pair with Pittosporum eugenioides 'Platinum'.

I've used Helleborus niger on a few designs and love its easy care. It's very underused, making it, in turn, hard to find. My favorite use of it was a garden where I paired it with Ligularia 'Aurea-maculata'. The visual texture of the leaves play well together.

Thanks for the reminder to throw this back into my next palette.
