Rio Carnival Lenten Rose
Destined to Succeed
Hybridizer Hans Hansen is the Rockstar of Lenten Roses. Each of his series displays some of the most exquisite blooms around. This variety from the Honeymoon™ series is the perfect example. It's the beautiful color contrast between the petals and their rich-colored edges and speckles that makes each bloom shine. Because it's a Hansen hellebore, you can expect a very floriferous plant. Use Rio Carnival in all styles of gardens—from rock to shade, to cutting, to woodland. Once mature, it's drought tolerant and rarely ever bothered by deer. Like all Lenten Roses, it'll bloom early in the season, adding color to the garden, even if it has to burst through the snow to do so.
