Helleborus 'Pine Knot Strain' is a blend of hellebores whose blooms are mostly single but may be semi-double or double. Also referred to as Lenten Rose, this mix has a wonderful range of colors from dark slaty purple-blue to pure white picotees, yellows, and everything in between. Helleborus 'Pine Knot Strain' is grown best in morning sun or light shade with good air circulation. This early blooming perennial prefers organic-rich soil. Lenten Rose will tolerate sun with consistently moist soil. Cut back old leaves in winter if they look shabby.
