Both the Latin and the English names of H. niger, the Christmas Rose, are misleading. Niger refers to this Hellebores black root rather than the flower, which is pure white and the Christmas Rose seldom flowers at Christmas; it normally flowers From mid Jan through March. Hellebores are as rule very drought tolerant and will thrive in poor soil. The Christmas Rose will not. It needs rich, moist soil and will not put up with second best. All Hellebores attract bees and are rabbit proof.
