Hellebores are popular with gardeners because they flower in cold winter and spring, bringing a touch of color to your garden. There are around 20 species of this herbaceous perennial, but the most popular are H. orientalis and its colourful hybrids.
The plants are easy to grow because they are hardy (frost-resistant), so you don’t need to worry about them dying. They flower in winter and early spring from Christmas to Easter, so they are often known as Christmas roses or Lenten roses. Read more about Hellebores here.
