Hellebore Ivory Prince 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. Hellebore Ivory Prince is a complex hybrid whose parents are unknown. It is a bushy, clump-forming perennial that typically grows to 12 to 18 inch 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 to 3 inch diameter) with overlapping petals bloom atop reddish stems from late winter to mid-spring (March to May in St. Louis). Flowers acquire pink tones with age. Evergreen compound leaves are deeply lobed and divided into 3 to 7, narrow, lance-shaped to elliptic, usually-toothed leaflets per leaf.
Hybrid hellebores, sometimes commonly called hybrid Lenten roses or hybrid winter roses, are bushy, clump-forming perennials that typically grow to 12 to 15 inches tall. They are noted for producing single, cup-shaped flowers (typically 2 to 3 inches diameter) with five showy, usually overlapping petals (technically sepals), but sometimes come in a double-flowered form.
Flowers bloom in a large variety of colors, including various shades and tints of white, pink, red, purple, and yellow, and sometimes have inside spotting. Bloom typically commences in mid to late winter extending into early spring. Flowers appear at the tips of branched stems clad with evergreen dark green leaves which are divided into glossy, leathery, deeply-lobed, often toothed, lanceolate to elliptic segments.
Genus name comes from the Greek words bora meaning food and helein meaning injures/destroys in reference to the plant’s toxic leaves, stems, and roots which are poisonous to humans if ingested.
