Christianson’s 15th Winter Festival
Saturday and Sunday, February 27 – 28, 2021, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Now through April, when most perennials are slumbering in dormancy, hellebores are in full bloom with flowers that provide color and interest in the garden. Known as the Christmas or Lenten rose, hellebore’s cheery characteristic soothes a barren garden bereft of life and reinstills hope for warmer months ahead. Now available in endless varieties with endearing forms likened to single petal roses, both Helleborus orientalis and Helleborus niger are fit for winter survival from pot to ground.
Plant Christmas Roses in groups of three to five or combine them with other lasting companions such as snowdrops, daffodils, hardy cyclamen, bleeding hearts, Trillium, and Japanese tassel fern. Together, they will make a beautiful winter flower bed that requires little care. Discover your hellebore style by visiting the Propagation House during this year’s Winter Celebration.
