  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: heavy, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: February to April
  • Flower colour: reddish-pink
  • Other features: all parts of the plant cause severe discomfort if ingested; the sap may cause skin irritation
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Heavily spotted, red-pink flowers and dark green foliage, make these perennials a fine addition to winter-themed containers, especially when under-planted with early spring flowering bulbs. Their dainty appearance belies their tough and resilient nature.

  • Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould or organic matter to the planting hole. Cut the old leaves back down to the ground in January or February as this will show off the new emerging flowers to best effect. It will also help to get rid of foliar diseases such as Hellebore leaf spot. 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. Cut off the seed heads to prevent inferior seedlings colonising.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
