Winter Flowers to Warm To. Part 4



Commonly called the Christmas Rose, it is not actually related to the rose but actually part of the Ranunculaceae family. Which puts them in the same family as Ranunculus, Delphinium, Clematis, Acontitum, among others.


Hellebores flower in the late winter and into spring, which gives you something nice to look at while everything else is residing in your garden.




They have these lovely structural leaves, which makes the plant nice to look at even if it isn’t flowering.

If you are planting one for at home, they will survive in a variety of locations but most prefer it in a shady spot. They are easy to care for and very hardy.


Whilst not very popular as a cut flower, they make great plants and you can bet that your local garden centre will have one!
