Start enjoying your garden even earlier in the year with this unique and lovely perennial. Appearing in the late winter to early spring, Molly's White Hellebore sends up plentiful large, beautiful greenish-white blooms amid bright green leather foliage. These tough yet tender flowers often push through the snow to reach the early rays of light. Shaded borders, cutting gardens and woodland areas are perfect sites for Molly's White. Plant alongside brighter hellebore varieties and you'll have a great, multi-hued display to enjoy. A Frostkiss® series hellebore, it boasts big, forward-facing flowers that emerge a little later than many of its kind. Helleborus Frostkiss® Molly's White PP25685

Unique CharactersticsPP&L: The Frostkiss® Hellebores series are some of the first plants to bloom in the spring. Although all Hellebore demand attention, the Frostkiss Hellebores will earn a special place in your heart. Beautiful, tough and easy to grow, their large, forward-facing blooms flower the first year and provide a lasting show of color. Although the Frostkiss series are earlier blooming perennials, they are late blooming Hellebore. These are not timed for Christmas like the niger types but are more timed for early spring, Feb-April, so they will fit right in with other perennial products. A sister seedling to Penny's Pink and Anna's Red, Molly's White bring a nice clear white to the lineup of Rodney Davey hybrids. Growth habit and bloom time will be similar to that of Penny's Pink and Anna's Red.
