Lenten or Christmas Roses are hardy and one of the first to bloom in the spring. Champion is a hybrid selection with matching vigor, beauty, and ease of maintenance. It forms wide clumps of dark green foliage topped with stalks of buds that begin rosy pink and open to a creamy white with pink backs. The perfect plant for naturalizing in moist, woodland areas where its extensive root system will spread as far as it is allowed. Deer resistant.
Plant in partial to full shade and keep the soil moist. For best blooming results, trim old leaves to the ground in late winter before buds emerge.
