Characteristics: Helleborus Niger, also known as the Christmas Rose, are semi-evergreen outdoor plants with mounds of dark green, leathery foliage and large white, bowl-shaped flowers which begin to bloom in winter.
Growth and spread: These garden plants can reach an ultimate height and spread of approximately 0.1-0.5 metres.
Care and maintenance: Plant Christmas Rose plants in moist, well-drained soil in a partially shaded area. Damaged foliage can be pruned back as flowers begin to bloom. Wear gloves when handling as skin irritation can occur.
Period of interest: Semi-evergreen foliage remains on the plant for most of the year, whilst flowers begin to bloom in January and can continue until late winter or early spring.
Helleborus Niger, more commonly known as the Christmas Rose plant, are outdoor, winter flowering plants with deep green, leathery foliage which remains for most of the year. In mid-winter, around January, beautiful, large, white flowers begin to bloom and continue until late winter or early spring.
These perennial plants will grow best in moist, well-drained soil in a partially shaded spot in the garden. They are perfect for planting in beds and borders, among other garden shrubs and roses, to add interest over the winter period, although they would look equally fabulous planted alone in a plant pot or container.
