Helleborus Niger (Christmas Rose)

Helleborus Niger (Christmas Rose)

OUT OF STOCK
Pretty, large bowl shaped flowers in brilliant white against dark green leathery leaves. Despite its name and resembling the wild rose Helleborus niger is a member of the buttercup family rather than the Rosaceae. This cottage garden plant is highly prized as it flowers throughout the darkest winter months, from December to March. A great flower to have in a winter border, it can be a useful addition to a winter bouquet. Classed as semi-evergreen as the leaves tend to die back after flowering in the first year after planted. First grade loose roots supplied.
