Hellebores for the Winter Garden

Hellebores for the Winter Garden

Gardens can look very bare in the winter months, but there are some wonderful winter-flowering plants, and hellebores are some of the best. They are very long-flowering, and look wonderful with snowdrops and evergreen ferns, which enjoy the same conditions, and it’s really worth setting aside a partially shaded corner for them, even in small gardens, to brighten this dismal time of year. If you have room for a winter-flowering deciduous shrub or small tree, many hellebores, ferns and some bulbs do really well planted underneath them. Plant hellebores within view of the house, go out to look at their exquisite blooms on mild days, and pick a few for the house – the flower-heads are really pretty floated in a bowl of water.


One of the great things about hellebores is that their foliage is not just handsome but evergreen, giving year-round structure and good ground cover. And when the flowers appear, they are not only beautiful, but an excellent nectar- and pollen-source for early-emerging pollinators. Most people know the Lenten Rose, but there are lots of other species and hybrids to consider, including the Corsican hellebore, which prefers more sun, the tender Majorcan hellebore, the unjustly named stinking hellebore, the Eric Smith and Stern hybrids and, of course, the ethereally beautiful Christmas rose.
