An elegant, evergreen hellebore, Snow Rose Marlon (Helleborus x ericsmithii) bears creamy coloured flowers, in bud as early as November, which continue flowering well into spring. These flowers mature to a green and aubergine colour and sit atop clump forming foliage. Ideal for a woodland area or underplanting shrubs, they also look most fetching planted in a container on a terrace for some subtle winter colour. 

A snow rose combines the snow hardiness of a Christmas rose with the heritage of a Mediterranean hellebore, allowing it a greater degree of sun tolerance. It grows quickly, flowers early and is an easy-care perennial that, if it enjoys its position, should thrive in the garden for decades.

  • Flowers: November -February
  • Hardy
  • Well drained soil 
  • South, East or West aspect 
  • Full sun or partial sunlight
  • Harmful if eaten, may cause skin allergy
  • 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 midsummer.
