Description

Helleborus HGC® Lulu, a cherished member of the Ranunculaceae family, is a perennial marvel celebrated for its captivating blooms and enduring allure. Standing at a compact height, Lulu boasts evergreen foliage that remains delightful throughout the seasons.   Helleborus x lemperii Hellebores owe their beauty to the fact that they are crosses between the Lenten Roses (Helleborus x hybridus) and Christmas Roses (Helleborus niger). The true magic of Helleborus HGC® Lulu is unveiled through its exquisite flowers, delighting the garden from late Winter to early Spring. These blooms present a delicate yet impactful pink with white edging, adorned with intricately detailed petals. Lulu's nodding blossoms add festive interest to shaded areas, elevating the garden's charm during the colder months. Helleborus HGC® Lulu finds its perfect spot in partially shaded to dappled sunlight areas, where its delicate hues and evergreen foliage thrive. Its versatility extends to container gardening, offering elegance to patios and porches, and vastly impactful when used for en-masse planting in beds and borders, for excellent ground cover. Lulu's impact extends indoors as well as its blooms have the power to infuse indoor spaces with texture and colour. Whether displayed in vases, arrangements, or as standalone accents, Lulu's flowers serve as a gentle reminder of the splendour of Winter. Indoors, Lulu's cut flowers enable you to craft captivating compositions that reflect the enchantment of the Winter landscape.

Planting Conditions

Hellebore HGC® Lulu 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® Lulu with the right conditions, and let this Winter beauty work its magic.

Watering & Feeding

Hellebore HGC® Lulu 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® Lulu continues to reign supreme in your garden.

General Care

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® Lulu will reward you with enchanting beauty year after year.
