Plant of the month – Helleborus

Hellebore, sometimes known as the Christmas or Lenten rose has been selected as our plant of the month. A beautiful plant that produces saucer-shaped flowers from late Winter to early Spring. The perennial garden plant comes in a variety of colours including white, pink, red, green, yellow or purple.

These easy to maintain plants thrive in dappled shade, creating stunning ground cover. Often the subtle flowers are hidden by leathery deep green leaves, so you may be required to remove old  leaves for a more dynamic display.
