Helleborus x ballardiae ‘HGC Love Bug’


('productnameshort')

Helleborus 'HGC Love Bug' is cute and compact with pink flowers. Just like puppies or kittens, resistance is futile.


Description:
'Love Bug' has pink buds followed by small pink flowers maturing to deep pink all starting in early February. The darkest pink tones develop in colder temperatures. Handsome, bluish green foliage on red stems. The leaves and flowers are smaller than 'Pink Frost' offering a more dwarf pink hellebore. Great in containers! The outstanding Helleborus Gold Collection brings magical, new life to winter and early spring blooming hellebores. Flowering the first year, they are long blooming, with lots of outward-facing buds and blossom. Deer resistant.
