Description

Helleborus HGC® Ice N Roses® Carlotta is an alluring member of the Ranunculaceae family and brings enchantingly vintage blooms to your Winter landscape. Carlotta boasts evergreen foliage that maintains its allure year-round adding texture and shape to your shadier garden spots. Ice N’ Roses® combine the early flowers of Christmas Roses (Helleborus niger) with the multiple colours of Lenten Roses and the robust nature of Snow Roses. Hellebores come in a vast diversity of flower colours, boasting upright, showy flowers and strong stems. Despite their fantastic looks through Winter, these perennials are quite low maintenance once established, and have a very long and late flowering period. The magic of Helleborus HGC® Ice N Roses® Carlotta is revealed through its exquisite flowers, emerging from late Winter to early Spring and the delicate colours on Carlotta's nodding blossoms range from soft vintage pinks to creamy whites, which captivate shaded borders, woodlands, and Spring displays. Thriving in partial shade, Carlotta shines in gardens, woodlands, and containers, with versatility extending to patios and outdoor spaces too. Beyond the garden, Carlotta's allure extends indoors. Its blooms infuse indoor spaces with elegance, whether arranged in vases, groupings, or as standalone accents. Carlotta's flowers, when standing in your colder Winter garden spaces, embody the splendour of Winter, offering captivating compositions and will draw in attention from pollinators from miles around.

Planting Conditions

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Carlotta thrives in partial to full shade, making it a perfect choice for those shadier spots in your garden. Ensure the planting area has well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Space the plants around 18 to 24 inches apart to give them room to flourish. With its preference for cooler temperatures, this plant is well-suited for woodland gardens or as a border plant. Once established, it's remarkably low-maintenance, making it an excellent addition to gardens of varying sizes. Prepare your Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Carlotta with the right conditions, and let this Winter beauty work its magic.

Watering & Feeding

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Carlotta prefers consistent soil moisture, especially during its growing period. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry, but avoid waterlogging. Mulching helps retain moisture. Feeding is simple – apply a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early Spring as new growth emerges. Avoid excessive fertilisation, as it can lead to leggy growth. This resilient plant doesn't demand constant attention; its low-maintenance nature allows you to enjoy its enchanting beauty without fuss. Just remember, a bit of watering and feeding care will ensure Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Carlotta continues to reign supreme in your garden.

General Care

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Carlotta is a low-maintenance gem that shines in your garden. Plant it in well-drained soil with partial to full shade. Water consistently, especially during dry spells, while avoiding waterlogged conditions. Apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser in early Spring to nourish its growth. Deadhead spent flowers for continued blooming and prune any damaged leaves. This hellebore variety is deer-resistant and generally free from serious pests or diseases. Celebrate its Winter blooms by cleaning up old leaves in late Winter to make way for new growth. With minimal effort, Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Carlotta will reward you with enchanting beauty year after year.
