Helleborus x 'California Dreaming' Lenten Rose



Helleborus x 'California Dreaming' Lenten Rose has lovely single primrose yellow blooms with darker yellow centers and yellow stamens. 'California Dreaming' is a hybrid helleborus that flowers in late winter to early spring. Lenten rose's dark green leathery, evergreen foliage makes it a great perennial for naturalizing in a shady border or woodland. Once 'California Dreaming' matures, it will bloom heavily, so it is also a good cut flower. Part of the Honeymoon® Series of Helleborus.

Helleborus prefer light to partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. They are particularly good in deciduous shade. Helleborus can take a half day of morning sun if given adequate moisture.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.
