Outdoor Plant of the Month – Helleborus Verboom Beauty
~ The Christmas Rose ~
A beautiful hybrid of Helleborus niger bearing an abundance of pure white, star-shaped flowers above dark evergreen foliage from Christmas time until early Spring. This variety of Hellebore is particularly impressive as it has been bred to flower from the beginning of advent. Carefully remove any foliage to expose the beautiful buds and blooms.
Perfect for enjoying indoors during the festive season when new foliage emerges then plant out in a sheltered spot in the garden to enjoy in future years.
A gift that keeps on giving – Helleborus ‘Verboom Beauty’ makes for the perfect Christmas gift and we have a lovely selection to choose from!
The Legend of the Christmas Rose
Legend has it that, when Jesus was born all the plants awoke from their winter slumber for a moment. Only the Hellebore forgot to go back to sleep, and kept on blooming. Since then it shows its pure white flowers all winter which is why it is called the Christmas rose!
