Helleborus (Rodney Davey Marbled Group) Pippa's Purple ('Rd09') (PBR)


5 year guarantee Perfect for pollinators
2 litre pot £24.99

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

    This relatively new cultivar is a prolific bloomer, and it produces its whopping (up to 7cm across), flat-faced flowers from late winter to mid-spring. It looks great when planted in random drifts beneath the canopy of existing trees and shrubs, or when used to line a partially shaded pathway.

  • 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
