Helleborus niger (The Christmas Rose)
The Christmas Rose boasts large, round, flat-faced, snow-white flowers which are set off beautifully against leathery, deep green foliage. Despite its common name, it cannot always be guaranteed to flower at Christmas, however; many plants do not bloom until the same time as other hellebores, later in the spring. It looks outstanding in a winter border, but is also ideal for growing in pots in a cold frame, sun room or frost-free greenhouse, which will encourage earlier flowering. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner. Height 45cm. Supplied in a 9cm pot.
