Why we love it

A real Winter blessing, as she blooms in the colder months!

  • Perfect to plant now: all our plants are perfect to plant now and we select perennials, so they'll live on year after year
  • Easy-going: keep her soil moist and she'll be happiest in partial shade, but will do ok in full sun if necessary!
  • Dazzling white: she's a real dazzler, with her lush white flowers and rich green leaves
  • Pop her on a table or the windowsill: she may be small, but she's a great display plant for a table or a windowsill
  • Beautiful winter flowers: Christmas Rose is at her best between November and February, where she brings some much needed brightness to the darker months

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.
