The garnet red colour of the extra-large flowers of Ice N’ Roses® Barolo is reminiscent of the exquisite wine from Piemont. The hardy Snow Rose is as excellent as the wine, with flowers from January through April. Ice N’ Roses® Barolo also thrives in sunny places in the garden and is very robust. Combined with ornamental foliage plants in matching colours, such as alum root (Heuchera hybrids), bugleweed (Ajuga reptans) or ornamental grasses in concrete or pottery containers, Ice N’ Roses® Barolo brings colour to balconies, terraces and entrances alike.

Helleborus ‘Ice n Roses’ series are an incredible breakthrough in Hellebore breeding. This is what the breeder says about them

  • hardy, extra robust, evergreen perennial
  • white, pink, red and even bicoloured flowers
  • dark red flowers stay dark red as they age
  • extra-large, upright flowers
  • floriferous, some varieties starting to bloom in November
  • thrives also in sunny spaces in the garden
  • low-maintenance, vigorous garden plant, also suited for large planters

‘…specifically, Ice N’ Roses® is a cross between Helleborus x ericsmithii and a Lenten Rose (Helleborus x hybrida). Snow Roses and Lenten Roses were previously not considered to be crossable. The resulting varieties are extremely robust, long-lived and disease resistant. They thrive well even in sunny places and flower for an exceptionally long period of time with new blooms continuously replacing the aged ones. Some varieties of these Snow Roses start to flower as early as November (e.g. HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Early Rose). The beautiful large blooms are carried high above the leaves and look you right in the eye. Colours range from deep red, rose and white to bicoloured varieties. The red varieties retain their colour for a long time after they stop blooming.’
