‘HGC Pink Frost’ is part of a new series of hellebores that, for the Midwest, bloom very early, some as early as January. This cultivar blooms a bit later, usually in March. The bud count is high, with buds coming out in February all along the plant stem. They start out a deep burgundy but open to soft pink, then age to earthy rose shades. Flowers rise above the foliage, so they are never hidden, and they face outward, creating maximum interest. — Irvin Etienne, Fine Gardening #147
