Opening a gentle pink, the beautifully tinted flowers of Helleborus Early Rose turn a richer, old rose shade as they mature. The deeply cut, evergreen foliage is tinged with purple and forms an attractive foil throughout the year. But the magic of hellebores arises from the fact that they bloom in winter when there is little colour in the garden.


These hellebores have been carefully bred in Germany, originally from the Christmas Roses (helleborus niger), to produce exceptionally robust varieties that flourish in our climate. The beautifully marked ‘petals’ are actually sepals (the petals modified to become nectaries), which is why the flowers last for so long.

  • Flowers: January onwards
  • Harmful if eaten, may cause skin allergy
  • Moist, well drained soil
  • Partial shade preferred, will tolerate sun

Leave foliage to protect the young buds, but as the hellebore flowers, remove the old foliage to reveal the blooms, this looks attractive and helps to prevent disease. Top dress with fertiliser in the autumn.
