Helleborus - Lenten rose
Helleborus is also known as niger is Christmas rose, and Helleborus orientalis as the lenten rose
Helleborus originates from the shrubby areas of the Alpine region; Helleborus like a bit of lime in the soil and are very hardy. Helleborus flowers during winter or early spring with spectacular flowers. Some Helleborus can be forced to flower in pots around Christmas (Helleborus Niger).
The so-called orientalis Helleborus types are very suitable for the border and in large pots. The flowers of the orientalis Helleborus types are very colourful. Once planted and settled Helleborus hate to be disturbed, so we suggest choosing the planting site with thought.
