A prestigious member of the Hellebore Gold Collection®, this variety of Lenten Rose is truly a treasure in winter gardens. Love Bug proudly presents upward facing blooms with creamy rose-toned petals complemented by bursts of lime yellow pistils. Adding even more interest to this already eye-catching display are its strong wine colored stems which emerge from a mound of handsome deep greenish blue foliage which stays lush and lovely all year long. This plant is quite compact, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with vivid winter and spring impact. It prefers complete shade, but is capable of tolerating partial sun. Reaching about 10-12 inches high, it's perfect for containers (indoors or out), the front of borders, and beds. Invite this darling Lenten Rose into your garden and soon you will see what all the fuss is about.
