Stunning flowers plus fantastic foliage. Dark purple buds on red stems open to single, rounded, saturated purple-red flowers with bright chartreuse nectaries. They appear for months from late winter into mid-spring. The leaves emerge in spring a bronzy green with electric pink veining. As the foliage matures, the marbling turns cream and remains attractive all year long. Helleborus 'Anna's Red' is a superb introduction that was 12 years in the making.
Helleborus, also known as Hellebore or Lenten Rose, have very early spring blooms and handsome, leathery foliage. Plant in borders or a woodland edge. Give light to moderate shade for best flowering. Tolerant of heat and humidity, and when established, drier conditions. Highly deer resistant.
