The petals of this particular variety of the Christmas Rose appear to have been soaked in burgundy, they are a sumptuous, deep red. Despite being a ‘Christmas Rose’, they are more likely to flower in February when there is so little of any colour in the garden making them especially valuable in shady borders. 

All hellebores have been carefully bred from the Christmas or Lenten Roses (Helleborus niger), to produce exceptionally robust varieties that flourish in our climate. The beautifully marked ‘petals’ are sepals (the petals modified to become nectaries), which is why the flowers last for so long, in this case well into and past Christmas.

  • Flowers: late November onwards
  • Harmful if eaten, may cause skin allergy
  • Moist, well drained soil
  • Partial shade preferred

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 autumn.
