Hello Hellebore Lovers!

There is no rest for a hellebore lover in winter. No sooner has the Christmas Hurrah! and our celebration of the Christmas rose, Helleborus niger, ended than it is time to look towards the late winter and spring-blooming hellebores, especially the Lenten rose, Helleborus x hybridus.

With spring in mind we are launching two hellebore pre-orders: The Winter Jewels and Winter Thrillers Pre-Order and the Marital Bliss Pre-Order. These are the best strains available in North America offering glorious colour and beauty for the February, March and April garden. Take a look and enjoy! You can purchase individual plants or you can save 10-15% when you purchase a collection. You can of course buy these hellebores for youself but you can also give them as gifts. We've created gift forms you can use to give to that lucky person.

We are also opening registration for our Hellebore Containers To Die For Workshop and our new Hellebore Crash Course free Gardening 101 seminar both at the Hellebore Hurrah! Opening Weekend at the end of February. Learn all about hellebores and fill in your knowledge with the crash course and create something gorgeous in the container workshop. Details are below.

Yours in Hellebores,
Gary and the Phoenicians

Two Hellebore Pre-Orders
for Christmas and the New Gardening Season

Winter Jewels and Winter Thrillers Hellebore Pre-Order
Order a la carte or save 15% when you order a collection!

The Winter Jewels and Winter Thrillers hellebores are the best available in North America. They come in double and single strains with bold, rich colours, large, symmetrical flowers and great vigour. These strains also improve every year due to the diligent breeding of Hellebore Queen Marietta O’Byrne and up and comer Chris Hansen. Because they are seed strains every plant is unique and collectible. The exact colour of each plant will be close to the pictures but not always exact, though always beautiful.

The Marital Bliss Hellebore Pre-Order
Order a la carte or save 10-15% when you order a collection!

The single-flowered Honeymoon Series and the double-flowered Wedding Party Series are the creation of multi-talented breeder Hans Hansen. These series combine great colours, flower forms, detailing, symmetry, flower count, and plant vigour. All plants are carefully maintained seed strains. Plants will look much like the photos but may not be identical. This variation means that even within a single strain you could find multiple different plants that you love.
