The most beautiful flowers in the winter! The Helleborus ‘Hello Pearl’ adds colour to your garden or terrace when it is still grey and bare outside. The long-blooming lenten rose (Helleborus orientalis) is native to countries such as Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey, and its range extends to central Asia. Since the Helleborus is one of the few plants that blooms in the winter and early spring, it is also a wonderful way to awaken the first bees from their hibernation. A favourite among gardening enthusiasts!

Hellebores grow well in the garden but are also quite happy in a large planter. Improve poor garden soil with a mix of compost, granulated cow manure or leaf mould. Plant your Christmas rose at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below soil level. Fill the hole with soil, press firmly and water generously immediately after planting. Hellebores like full sun or partial shade in permeable, fertile soil.
All Hellebores are strong, hardy garden plants. Make sure the soil around the roots does not dry out and water extra in dry summery weather. A place in partial shade is better than being in full sun. As the plant begins to flower, cut the old leaves right back and the flowers will look even prettier. You will soon see signs of new leaves that will look beautiful through the summer. Cover with a mulch of fallen leaves in winter for protection.
