    This unique new hellebore is the first white-flowered form that has the potential to be in flower on Christmas day. If kept in a pot, it can be brought inside in November (to a bright spot well away from a radiator) and it should soon produce masses of buds that open over several weeks. After 4 - 5 weeks, it should be gradually acclimatised to outdoor temperatures and then planted out in the garden, where it may continue to flower intermittantly for another few weeks. This plant makes a great seasonal gift, but is equally useful for livening up a shady spot in the garden during the winter.

  • Garden care: Add lots of well-rotted leaf mould or organic matter to the planting hole. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant in autumn and provide a top-dressing of general fertiliser each spring.
  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
