Description / Helleborus 'Double Ellen White' Hellebore

Helleborus 'Double Ellen White' stands out as an exquisite evergreen perennial, bringing year-round intrigue to the garden. Helleborus White is celebrated for its heavy blooming phase from early winter through to mid-spring, where it presents chic, frilly, double white flowers. These blooms, perched atop long, sturdy stems above the plant's palm-like, glossy, dark green leaves, transition from nodding to outward-facing, ensuring they capture the eye for an extended period. Their durability makes them perfect for kitchen table bouquets or as charming additions to cut floral arrangements. Beyond their beauty, these silvery white flowers are nectar-rich, offering an essential early food source for emerging bees.

As a hybrid Helleborus, commonly referred to as Lenten rose or hellebore, 'Double Ellen White' exhibits a slow growth rate but matures into a bushy, upright, clump-forming plant. It displays its full glory when massed or grouped in garden beds, borders, and patio pots, also serving beautifully as ground cover. Over time, Helleborus White will naturalize, spreading its moss green foliage through rhizomatous roots, without becoming invasive. This plant thrives under the canopy of high-branched deciduous trees or large shrubs, where it's sheltered from harsh winter winds and roots are kept cool.

Notably cold hardy, 'Double Ellen White' is both easy to grow and low maintenance, favoring dappled shade locations with organically rich, moist, well-draining soil. While it prefers a neutral to alkaline pH, Helleborus White adapts well to various soil types, including chalk, clay, and loam, and is resilient in most growing conditions. Once established, this hellebore variety becomes drought tolerant, though it does not fare well in excessively wet conditions. Its resistance to deer, rabbits, and salt makes it a robust addition to diverse and year-round garden settings.

Optimize your garden's winter and early spring landscape with the serene beauty of Helleborus 'Double Ellen White'. Its white flowers, set against dark, moss green foliage, provide a stunning contrast that enlivens the garden during the colder months, while its roots are kept cool and protected.
