Properties and uses:
The Christmas rose as the name suggests flowers around Christmas time. However, this is only true if there are cooler nights from the 15th of August onwards. It has small white flowers that turn pinkish towards the end of flowering.
This is a delicate plant and it requires great attention if it is to provide a good display of flowers. Be careful when choosing its position and give it compost on a regular basis.
Hellebores are toxic and care must be taken to keep them away from children and animals.
