What a beauty! Double black flowers with tidy layers of petals all punctuated with cream stamens.
Winter Roses are amazing evergreen perennials that offer a lasting floral display from winter to spring. They are ideal for filling the difficult shady spots in your garden. Their handsome, evergreen foliage and pretty blooms are a winner!
Winter Roses, or Hellebores are durable and versatile in the garden. They grow best beneath deciduous trees, in filtered light or part shade (they don't tend to flower as well in really heavy shade). You can also choose to plant Winter Rose in beds sheltered from hot afternoon sun or even in pots. The flowers are long lasting and measure 5-8cm across.
The blooms open so freely there is plenty for picking - a real boon for winter. A nice way to display them is floating in a bowl as a table centrepiece. The stems can also be picked for vases. You can dip them in boiling water after picking to prolong their life.
