Anna's Red Helleborus is a newer Lenten Rose that is sure to become a regular in your woodland gardens.
New growth of the Anna's Red Hellebore is bronze green shading with pinkish veining, maturing to glossy green foliage with silvery cream veining for all year enjoyment. In late winter, the Anna's Red Lenten Rose pops out the brilliant purple red flowers with bright chartreuse nectaries that continue on into mid spring.
As with all Hellebores, you will want to plant the winter flowering Anna's Red Helleborus where they can grow and live for many years. Hellebores resent being disturbed. In late winter, clip all of the old evergreen growth (leave new growth) just before new buds emerge so the focus will be on the colorful flowers.
Lenten Rose was the 2005 Perennial Plant of the Year. The Anna's Red Lenten Rose matures in the 18 to 24 inch height range and spreads up to 24 inches wide. Needs regular watering. Do not let dry out. An excellent choice for container gardens, naturalizing and borders.
Hellebores are harmful if eaten and can cause skin irritations so be sure to wear gloves and protective clothing when planting.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.
Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.
This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
