Grow the most prestigious Christmas Rose in your garden. Hellebores are true garden gems during the winter months; producing luxuriant flowers during the coldest months of the year when little else is in growth, let alone in flower! We run our own unique hellebore breeding programme at our Suffolk trial grounds. New for 2015, we are excited to release our regal-looking ‘Black Swan’ – a vast improvement on older black-flowered forms. Holding its jet-black blooms up for all to see, it’s as if ‘Black Swan’ knows what a beauty it is compared to older types, many of which tend to present their flowers to the soil below! We believe we’ve hit on the perfect form and habit with Hellebore ‘Black Swan’ – neat foliage growth that runs right through summer, a double layer of sumptuously velvety petals, starkly contrasted by the pure white stamens in winter. This classy performer deserves a place in every garden as the star winter attraction.
