If you can't get enough of the woodland look and early-spring appeal of Lenten Roses, Fresco Hellebores provides even more of what you love. With sepals painted in delicate strokes of pink and maroon, these blooms may remind you of brushed works of art. Incredible veining on each double-layered flower adds a marvelous texture to the dreamy, sophisticated air of later-winter hellebores. Cup-shaped flowers open to several inches across and open on sturdy stems that are perfect for cutting. Fresco will wow you with a height of 24 to 28 inches—significantly larger than traditional hellebores—with a wonderfully thick, mounded habit. Helleborus orientalis
