Description

Helleborus HGC® Ice N Roses® Red Romance is a captivating example of the Helleborus Gold Collection®. Part of the Ranunculaceae family, this fully hardy hellebore cultivar, holds a unique allure that captivates gardening enthusiasts. Red Romance unveils its deep red blossoms during colder months, creating a vivid contrast against the harsh Winter landscape. These festive blooms, often adorned with speckles or veining, defy the cold and warm you just as your Winter woollies would. Red Romance's lush green foliage remains a year-round delight, enhancing its ever-present charm. Its fully hardy reliability allows it to thrive in diverse garden designs, from shaded beds and borders to woodland aesthetics, pots and containers, Mediterranean gardens, urban gardens and cottage gardens. We believe that Red Romance looks wonderfully powerful used as underplanting to trees and roses, returning year after year. Helleborus HGC® Ice N Roses® Red Romance offers more than outdoor beauty—it's also suitable for indoor use. With its early-blooming and long-lasting cut flowers, it can illuminate interior spaces during Winter. Placing a cut stem in a vase not only adds elegance but also brings the soothing abilities of the garden indoors.

Planting Conditions

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Red Romance thrives in partial to full shade, making it a perfect choice for those shadier spots in your garden. Ensure the planting area has well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Space the plants around 18 to 24 inches apart to give them room to flourish. With its preference for cooler temperatures, this plant is well-suited for woodland gardens or as a border plant. Once established, it's remarkably low-maintenance, making it an excellent addition to gardens of varying sizes. Prepare your Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Red Romance with the right conditions, and let this Winter beauty work its magic.

Watering & Feeding

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Red Romance prefers consistent soil moisture, especially during its growing period. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry, but avoid waterlogging. Mulching helps retain moisture. Feeding is simple – apply a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early Spring as new growth emerges. Avoid excessive fertilisation, as it can lead to leggy growth. This resilient plant doesn't demand constant attention; its low-maintenance nature allows you to enjoy its enchanting beauty without fuss. Just remember, a bit of watering and feeding care will ensure Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Red Romance continues to reign supreme in your garden.

General Care

Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Red Romance is a low-maintenance gem that shines in your garden. Plant it in well-drained soil with partial to full shade. Water consistently, especially during dry spells, while avoiding waterlogged conditions. Apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser in early Spring to nourish its growth. Deadhead spent flowers for continued blooming and prune any damaged leaves. This hellebore variety is deer-resistant and generally free from serious pests or diseases. Celebrate its Winter blooms by cleaning up old leaves in late Winter to make way for new growth. With minimal effort, Hellebore HGC® Ice N’ Roses® Red Romance will reward you with enchanting beauty year after year.
