The Hellebore Hurrah! 2014 this Weekend!


Celebrating our 11th Anniversary Season!

Hello Fellow Gardeners!

The eve of the Hellebore Hurrah! always feels like Christmas to us at Phoenix Perennials. We love hellebores! And we hope you do too. They are one of the all time best perennial groups for temperate gardens. Nothing takes care of winter and spring in the garden like a hellebore!

The Hellebore Hurrah! Opening Weekend starts tomorrow! It's going to be one of the best ever with the largest selection we have ever offered: 107 different species, strains and cultivars! Please tell all your friends, family, neighbours, coworkers and strangers about town! We need your help to get the word out about the Hellebore Hurrah! -- what many of our customers call "the official start of spring in Vancouver".

And with that it's time to start studying with our Hellebore Catalogue. The catalogue includes articles about hellebores and descriptions and photos of all the varieties we'll have on offer. You can print it off and start taking notes! Enjoy. And if you don't know much about hellebores yet you won't want to miss our free hellebore workshops on Friday and Saturday at noon. Details below..

Today is the deadline for our two pre-sale hellebore offers: Helleborus 'Anna's Red' will make a perfect Valentine's Day present to your loved one or to yourself or to your garden. Our Winter Jewels Pre-Sale is a special opportunity to fill your garden with colour and save money at the same time with three different hellebore collections. Supplies are limited so please order early.

See you this weekend at the nursery!

Cheers, Gary and the Phoenicians

The Most Passionate Hellebore for Valentine's Day: 'Anna's Red' Pre-Sale

Add passion to your garden for Valentine's Day! 'Anna's Red' is the best red hellebore in the world. This breakthrough cultivar brings the bold red colour only rarely achieved by the Lenten roses to the stemmed group of hybrids previously limited to white, green & pink.

These rich, velvety red flowers are stunning in the winter garden centred with their bright yellow stamens. The flowers positively glow when the sun shines through them. The flowers have a mostly upright and outward-facing habit sometimes with a slight nod and sit atop superlative foliage. As if the richness of colour of the flowers isn't enough, the leathery, boldly-mottled foliage emerges flushed with red variegation that later turns to silvery mint green! Yes. This is a red flowered and (in spring) red foliaged hellebore!

'Anna's Red' is a unique and superlative new hellebore cultivar that is bound to be a classic.

Whether 'Anna's Red' ends up as a Valentine's Day present for your loved one or for yourself your late winter and early spring garden will never be the same!

Our 'Anna's Red' hellebores are blooming plants in gallon pots for $24.99 plus tax. They include an optional cellophane wrapping with red ribbon for Valentine's Day. They can be picked up starting on Tuesday February 11th from 10am-5pm including at the Hellebore Hurrah! (Feb. 14-16) and after that any day seven days a week from 10am to 5pm.
