Buy Helleborus (Rodney Davey Marbled Group) 'Anna's Red' hellebore: The first red flowering hellebore with marbled foliage

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: neutral to alkaline, freely draining soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: February to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Named after plantswoman Anna Pavord and bred by Rodney Davey, this is the first red flowering hellebore with marbled foliage. It produces masses of flowers from late winter, each of them larger than average. Happiest in partial shade, it looks sublime underplanted with spring flowering bulbs.

  • Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould or organic matter to the planting hole. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant in autumn and provide a top-dressing of general fertiliser each spring.

These are large,healthy plants that have grown and flowered well. They are a rich red colour that has looked good in the winter garden. especially against the snow we have just now.

These were a gift and in their second year are looking very good with lots more flowers. Certainly an excellent accolade for the Company.

Top Quality Hellebore

I saw this variety first at Harlow Carr gardens, tracked it down via the internet to Crocus. Delivery was prompt and the quality and size of the plant excellent. It's the first hellebore this year to come into flower and has coped well with frosts, reviving completely as the day warms up. It has the richest colour of any hellebore I've planted before.

Planted in the newly designed flower bed in the back garden. Pretty foliage and flowers, providing colour during the winter.

I bought two of these Hellebores from Crocus. It's a beautiful plant with dark red flowers and large mottled leaves. I planted one in semi-shade and the other in a sunny, open part of my garden. Both have thrived. The stalks, with their large leaves, might need a little support but this is not a problem. Very healthy.

The colour is very good but growth is quite upright with dieback of leaves in summer, It does seem to recover in Spring and flowers last a long time The colour is very good. The name of that excellent gardener Anna Pavord attracted me in the first place

Heavenly helleborus

Once March arrives spring is definitely on the horizon and the gardener begins to stir, along with the bees and birds. There’s literally a buzz in the air and the earliest bees to arrive are often buff-tailed bumblebee queens (Bombus terrestris) fresh out
