A Christmas Rose for the holidays.

I would like to share a plant you're likely to find on display at many local nurseries right now. It is a Hellebore that was brought to my attention last year as an exceptional form of the well known, Christmas Rose (Helleborus niger).

This is the stunningly beautiful Helleborus niger 'Josef Lemper' currently blooming outside in the garden.

Helleborus Josef Lemper

It is an absolutely exquisite plant with beautiful evergreen foliage that never looks too ratty or worn out, but what I'm most impressed with is the copious amounts of buds yet to develop and open and the pure, pristine white blooms with the bright yellow stamens make this truly spectacular and it's hardy and vigorous habit makes it special for the landscape or in containers for the winter!!
