Easily grown in organically rich, humusy, alkaline, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers light to moderate shade. Although the foliage is evergreen, it may become scorched and tattered in extremely harsh winters, particularly if not sited in locations protected from cold winter winds and/or insulated by snow cover. Cut back flowering stems after bloom to promote new foliage growth.
‘Pink Lady’ is one of a number of seed strain hybrid hellebores (known as the Lady Series) developed by Gisela Schmiemann of Cologne, Germany. It is a bushy, clump-forming perennial that typically grows to 12-15″ tall and is noted for its glossy, leathery, evergreen, dark green leaves and its late winter to early spring bloom of pink and rose flowers. Evergreen leaves are deeply lobed and divided into 7-10, narrow, lance-shaped to elliptic, usually-toothed segments. Cup-shaped, pink flowers (to 2-3″ diameter) with overlapping petals bloom at the tips of leafy stems from late winter to mid-spring. Leaves, stems and roots are poisonous. Zones 4 to 9.
