Helleborus Penny's Pink, 2 Ltr

Christmas Rose

Perfect for growing in a container or pot

This beautiful plant has it all. Distinctive, sea-blue leaves are heavily marked with silver and are a bold feature through the year. The charming flowers are rich pink and held on strong red stems early in the year. Fluffy yellow centres complete the picture and are attractive to bees.

Where?

A great choice for a container in a shady spot or a shady border in your garden.

How?

Easy to grow in most garden soils. Enrich the soil with organic matter before planting - home made garden compost or well rotted manure are fine. Use a good quality loam based compost for container growing and raise the pot on 'pot feet' through the winter months to help with drainage. Remove untidy leaves in late winter to show off the flowers.

Rodney Davey has a nursery in Devon and is the breeder of many fine Hellebore varieties.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.

Planting site City garden, Courtyard garden, Patio container, Garden edging
