Why we love it

Meet Juliette. She's a delightful and gorgeous blooming hellebore (part of the buttercup family). We've matched her with two pot options for you to give a unique gift this valentines. 💘

These perennials are in bloom right now, and they have a lovely long flowering period lasting well into spring.

  • Dazzling colours: she's a real dazzler, with her pink and white flowers, and her rich green leaves
  • Pop her on a table or the windowsill: she's a great display plant for a table or a windowsill, but happiest when set outside too!
  • Beautiful blooming flowers: These buttercups (also known as Christmas Rose) is at her best in winter and Spring, where she brings some much needed brightness!

Background

Black hellebore is a winter-blooming perennial in the Ranunculaceae family, hence its nickname of 'Christmas Rose'. The scientific name comes from the Greek words 'Helein', meaning injures, and 'Bora', meaning food, referring to the toxic properties when the plant is eaten. The specific name 'niger', which means black, is in reference to the color of the roots.
