Helleborus x hybridus 'Double Ellen White'

 

Hellebore 'Double Ellen White'

White, somewhat pointed-tipped petals, which are lightly freckled with deep maroon, surround a boss of creamy white stamens. Hellebores also known as Lenten Rose, Winter Rose or Christmas Rose, are available in a wide range of colours and shades. They can have single or double flowers. They prefer fertile and free draining soil but not in full sun. The sepals do not fall as petals would, but remain on the plant, sometimes for many months.
