Description :

Helleborus x hybridus 'Double Ellen Red' is a recent hybrid bred by the Dutch nursery Nachtvlinder. Depending on the region, it produces superb, double, red flowers with pink-red marks from January until the beginning of April.

Double Ellen series is a safe bet in the small world of the hellebores as it has good disease resistance, is vigorous and performs well in terms of uniformity of flowering (95% double flowers and 70% from the first growing year).

Native to the north-east of Greece, northern Turkey and the Caucasus, the Helleborus orientalis species has several ornamental qualities:

  • clumps of thick, tough, evergreen leaves,
  • early flowering from mid-winter to early spring,
  • as tough and hardy as they come!

We like to plant Helleborus orientalis with partial shade varieties from the spring flowering perennials group (Primula, Pulmonaria, Anemone nemorosa, Brunnera...), with foliage plants (Ophiopogon, Acorus, Carex) and spring bulbs (Galanthus, Ipheions, Muscari, Narcissus, etc. )

This Helleborus or Lenten Rose likes a moist situation, in partial shade under cover of trees or shrubs and good, heavyish, slightly acid to neutral garden soil. Removing dead foliage before flowering will enhance the floral bouquet.

Maintenance: mulch with leaf mould after flowering
