Features

notes
A prolific flowerer throughout winter and into spring, Helleborus Penny’s Pink is ideal for bringing colour and interest to the winter garden, so plant along a pathway or in a swathe under trees for impact. The upright stems hold flat faced blooms that deepen in colour as they mature, starting as light pink and highlighted with creamy yellow stamens. 
Insights

Clump forming, the foliage of Penny’s Pink is distinguished with prominent yellow veining, and as a semi evergreen, it may lose some or all of its leaves if planted in an exposed area.

Flowers: February - April

Planting
  • Well drained soil 
  • West, North or East aspects
  • Full sun or partial sunlight
  • Sheltered
Care
  • Leave foliage to protect the young buds, but as the hellebore flowers, remove the old foliage to reveal the blooms, this looks attractive and helps to prevent disease. After the first year, top dress with fertiliser in autumn.
  • Caution is required since the whole plant is toxic to humans and animals and can be a skin irritant
  • Does not like being moved once established
