Just in Time for the Holidays

HELLEBORE JACOB

There are few shade perennials that can compete with the seasonal interest of Hellebores. Often called Christmas or Lenten Rose, these staples of the winter garden are tough as nails and take center stage in the winter landscape.

Hellebore Jacob is characterized by its smooth, dark green foliage with striking, crisp 2-3 inch white flowers. This early bloomer flowers from mid-November to January, just in time for the holidays! The flowers mature to a pink and rose color in cool temperatures. In warmer temperatures, they mature to light green. Hellebores can be used in the garden in many ways, in containers, in flower beds or simply tucked under a tree. Once planted and established, the Hellebore will bring joy to the garden for many years to come. Hellebore Jacob is the perfect cure for long winters and cabin fever. Oh, and just one more thing…they’re deer resistant too.
