Are you familiar with Hellebores? You may know them from their nickname—Christmas Rose (for those that bloom in December) or Lenton Rose (for those that bloom in late winter). Each year more people are learning about hellebores and are becoming interested in planting them in the landscape. Hellebores are truly winter’s most interesting evergreen perennial.
Yes, you read this correctly—winter blooms, evergreen, and a perennial. Besides being a winter bloomer and an evergreen perennial, Hellebores are DEER RESISTANT!
We just brought in a large, fresh, new shipment of hellebores about three weeks ago—in the middle of January. They are beautiful and show some good colors. People come into the garden center and see them and ask, “can you plant this time of year?” The answer is YES! Here in Central Virginia we hardly ever experience our ground freezing deep. Hard, frozen ground is the only reason that may stop planting this time of year. Many landscape firms like to use this time of year to get caught up with all the planting demands.
As I stated earlier, we have a beautiful selection of hellebores at this time. Our soil is not frozen so you can be planting today.
