French Kiss Helleborus ‘French Kiss’ has 3-3½”, single white flowers lined with raspberry pink that veins in toward the center of the petals.
Frostkiss Anna’s Red Dark red flower buds on red stems in March.  The blooms open over time to dark pink petals (sepals) surrounding chartreuse nectaries and creamy anthers.  As they age, they take on shades of darker red and then bronzy green.  The marbled evergreen foliage is lustrous for most of the year, but is best removed in late winter in order to display the flowers better.
Frostkiss Cheryl’s Shine It’s a little more compact relative to the average hellebore. It blooms slightly later than most. The blooms face forwards instead of the typical nodding heads. The evergreen foliage has a cool marbled pattern.
Frostkiss Moondance Dark green foliage with silver veins is topped with white flowers that have a chartreuse center and age to pale green. Grows 24” tall. Exceptionally long blooming from February to April, Frostkiss® Hellebores emerge from the cold and often snow covered ground to welcome spring and continue a show of long lasting deer-resistant color for weeks.
Frostkiss Penny’s Pink When a plant is named after English plantswoman and author Penelope Hobhouse, it had better be good. It offers an ever-changing color show. The evergreen leaves have pronounced veining that is silver- or fuchsia-toned in spring then gold/emerald as the season progresses. Atop the foliage, purple buds give way to saucer-shaped, pale pink blossoms that intensify in color as they age.
Frostkiss Pippa’s Purple Lenten Rose is crowned with merlot flowers in February to April.  The large blooms have deep purple speckling and the evergreen foliage is a deep green overlaid with silver mottling.
Honeyhill Joy This hybrid from Honeyhill Farms is exceptional for its quantities of large, outfacing, cream-centered, white flowers over vigorous, shiny, blue tinged foliage.
Ivory Prince Rich burgundy pink buds open in late winter to reveal green-tinted ivory petals that age to rose. The vigorous and hardy hellebore, or “Lenten rose”, blooms in the winter and early spring garden before other plants awaken. Highly deer resistant, too.
