One of the best things about winter is Hellebores! This beautiful variety is a stunning garden addition with its amazing deep flower colour. For those seeking a classic, elegant hellebore, ‘Anna’s Red’ displays deep magenta blooms through the winter and early spring, this is one variety that is truly in demand. Hellebores provide stunning results when mass planted in shady areas of the garden and this beauty can be kept for up to three weeks indoors in a well lit room before being planted out into a container or garden bed.
Plant in any soil that is well draining. For best results, feed in late autumn and spring with a slow release fertiliser before and after flowering. Water requirements are medium, once established. Will benefit from an occasional deep soak during periods of extended heat. If growing in containers or full sun, care should be taken not to allow to dry out completely. Trim flowering stems back to ground level late spring and feed with a slow release fertilizer.
CAUTION – Harmful if eaten/skin irritant.
