Description

Unveil the captivating Helleborus HGC® Ice N Roses® Nightingale; a floral marvel that celebrates winter's embrace by providing a richly indulgent backdrop to festivities. This exceptionally powerful perennial defies the cold with its early, graceful blooms reminiscent of a nightingale's song. Nestled among evergreen foliage, the Ice N Roses® Nightingale showcases deeply rich velvet petals, in enchanting purple-red hues. Its audacious bloom during Winter's hush creates a symphony of texture and colour in your pots, containers, beds and borders and in a wide variety of garden designs due to its versatile appearance. 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. Adapting seamlessly to partial shade or full sunlight, this Helleborus variety graces a variety of garden spaces and will last for years to come. Its minimal maintenance requirements make it a cherished choice for both experienced gardeners and newcomers alike. Furthermore, the Ice N Roses® Nightingale beckons pollinators, inviting life into the garden during the quieter months. Whether you're a seasoned horticulturist or someone who seeks solace in nature's beauty.

Planting Conditions

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Nightingale 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® Nightingale with the right conditions, and let this Winter beauty work its magic.

Watering & Feeding

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Nightingale 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® Nightingale continues to reign supreme in your garden.

General Care

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Nightingale 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® Nightingale will reward you with enchanting beauty year after year.
