Helleborus Monte Christo is a well-proportioned, compact variety of the popular Christmas Rose, with dramatic, blue-grey, evergreen foliage and red stems supporting the creamy-white blooms that have a pink blush and pink reverse. Hellebores are notable for being long flowering and so provide a valuable source of nectar for foraging insects, especially bees, when little else is in flower.
 
Perfect in woodland gardens, shady borders, or naturalised areas, H. Monte Christo provides the greatest impact if planted in drifts. Needing low maintenance and being drought tolerant (once established), it is also an excellent candidate for planting in a container in a sheltered position.
