Helleborus 'Anna's Red'



18th February 2012


A most remarkable hybrid hellebore that has been released this year. I saw it a few days ago at the RHS show in Vincent Square. There were a few for sale but they disappeared in minutes. I got distracted and when I got back to the stand, they were gone. I did a bit of research (no, I didn't manage to find out the parentage) and managed to find the breeder, Rodney Davey. It is always good to meet people who have produced something remarkable.
I asked him about the parents. "If I told you that" he said "I'd have to kill you!"
He has Plant Breeders Rights and I hope he makes the fortune he deserves.
