Helleborus 'Anna's Red'

Lenten Rose

Plant Type: Perennial

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 foliage emerges in spring bronzy green with electric pink veining, like a pair of pink fishnet stockings has been wrapped around each leaf! As the evergreen foliage matures, the marbling turns cream and remains attractive all year long. Sister seedling of 'Penny's Pink'.
