ABOUT Helleborus niger (Christmas Rose) :
Helleborus niger is known commonly as the Christmas Rose because it flowers in the depths of winter or early spring.; this makes it a traditional favourite for adding joy to cottage gardens over the cold season. Helleborus niger, is great for growing at the front of a partially shaded border. If you enjoy having cut flowers in your home, simply float the blooms in a bowl of water to display them. Large, round flowers grow above its leathery, dark leaves. The flowers are typically white but are also available in pink.
To care for your Helleborus niger you should mulch it each year with well-rotten compost. Plant your Christmas Rose in well-drained soil where it will be in dappled, partial, or full shade. They don’t like to be moved once they have established, so do not divide them. However, if they are under the right conditions, they will self-seed so you will get replacements. To prune, cut back the old leaves as new ones appear.
There are some pests and diseases that may cause problems for your Helliborus such as Hellebore aphid, hellebore leaf miner, hellebore leaf spot, and hellebore black death. This plant could make people and pets unwell if eaten.
