Lenten roses, and all hellebores in fact, are quickly becoming a must–have for the spring garden. They bloom very early, sometimes even popping up through the late winter snow, showing off distinctive, sophisticated blooms. Hans Hanson, a renowned hellebore hybridizer, has just added this brand–new variety to his Wedding Party™ series. This is the one for those gardeners craving double hellebore blooms. The dark contrasting edge on each petal emphasizes the doubling effect. Use Black Tie Affair to spruce up the woodland garden, and create dazzling cut–flower bouquets. Pollinators love it, deer do not. Helleborus orientalis 'Black Tie Affair' Wedding Party™ Series
