Hellebores at Art's Nursery
Hellebores, also known as “Christmas Rose” are herbaceous or evergreen perennials that bloom in the winter time. They thrive in part shade to sun positions, in well-draining humic soil.
This winter bloomer is a beautiful long lived flower at a very unexpected time. Something we could all use right now! Hellebores can be brought inside temporarily if you want to liven up a winter display. Keep these flowers away from kids and pets if they like to eat your plants as they are toxic. We have several varieities available currenlty and more arriving as the season continues!
