Product Description

Flowering from January to April, Hellebore ‘Pretty Ellen Red’ is a hardy perennial that has stunning, luxurious rich burgundy red flowers with a splash of pale green, a fabulous sight in the winter garden when, if there are any other flowers around, they’re likely to be white.

The sumptuous flowers, each around 5cm in diameter, are incredibly tough whatever the weather and are held upwards instead of nodding downwards like most hellebores, up to 35cm above dark, leathery semi-evergreen leaves.

Extremely simple to grow, hellebores will slowly establish into small clumps, thriving in lower light and shady spots. They can be grown in pots too, provided they do not dry out in summer.

Supplied as 3 established plants in 9cm pots, growing to a height and spread of 35cm.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Remove old leaves as the buds emerge so that the flowers can be admired.
  • Care Guide

    • Plant in rich, well-drained soil in dappled shade and provide shelter from strong, cold winds.
    • Plants are not happy if left in very dry or waterlogged soil so incorporate plenty of well-rotted organic matter into the planting hole along with some horticultural grit if the soil is heavy.
    • Water regularly during dry spells and mulch annually with leaf mould, chipped bark or other organic matter in autumn.
