Red Lady Hellebore

One of the Lenten Rose plants added to my home garden was the Red Lady Hellebore.  In this post I share images and basic growing tips.

Red Lady Hellebore

There are many different varieties of hellebores available on the market today.   It has been exciting to see all the new colors locally.  Years ago when I brought home my first hellebore or Lenten Rose I had never seen one at a local garden center.  This Hellebore (Helleborus x hybridus ‘Red Lady’) came home in a florist pot that I purchased at a spring flower show in Chicago.

About Red Lady Hellebore

Many varieties of hellebore will do just fine in a container as a florist plant if kept in a cool location.  I was so nervous with mine in a container.  Keep the plant in a cool location like my breezeway is helpful during early Spring.  I didn’t want to lose this precious plant not to mention it was a little pricy for my budget.  The Lenten Rose does best in the landscape here in hardiness zone 5b / 6.  My soil in this landscape is a little loamy with natural ground cover.

Some of the plants I have my hellebore growing with are Hostas, Coral Bells, Columbine, Brunnera, and Bleeding Hearts.  Most shade ground covers make amazing companion plants as well.  If you click on each link you will see details on each plant idea.

Why I Recommend Red Lady Hellebore

A few things I love about this plant is the winter interest.  The leaves or foliage stay green and keep up out of the snow.   Early spring color from the blooms can be cut and enjoyed indoors.  Deer do not bother with the hellebore and if you are lucky to have bees super early they will love this!
