Quick Overview:

‘Walhelivor’ is commonly sold in commerce by the trade name of IVORY PRINCE. It was selected in 1995 in Sussex, England from a controlled breeding program designed to produce new helleborus plants that exhibited vigorous growth, upright form and flatness of flowers. IVORY PRINCE is a complex hybrid whose parents are unknown. It is a bushy, clump-forming perennial that typically grows to 12-18″ tall. It is noted for its burgundy-pink flower buds, its late winter bloom of creamy white flowers and its glossy, leathery, evergreen, medium green leaves. Outward-facing, cup-shaped, creamy white flowers (to 2-3” diameter) with overlapping petals bloom atop reddish stems from late winter to mid-spring. Flowers acquire pink tones with age

These evergreen plants bring an architectural quality to the shady garden. Most bloom in early winter in mild climates and in late winter or very early spring where the ground freezes hard. Resistant to both deer and voles, they are long-lived and provide exquisite blooms at a time when flowers are a scarce delight  Hellebores are at their best in evenly moist well-drained soil in partial shade. Water well during extended dry periods; they are drought-tolerant once established.  Hellebores appreciate a soil pH near neutral so the addition of lime is beneficial in acidic soils.
