Irresistible Helleborus are bursting through the cold to arrive in full bloom for Christianson’s annual Winter Festival in March,
just after the Northwest Flower & Garden Festival. When most perennials are slumbering, hellebores are in full bloom from
December through April. These understory perennials are easy to grow, deer resistant, and grown in endless varieties; some
are clear, others have spotting, striping, and can be bi-colored. A few of our favorites are Helleborus x hybridus ‘Sunrise’,
Helleborus niger ‘Josef Lemper’, Helleborus niger x orientalis ‘Madam Lemmonier’, and Helleborus x ballardiae ‘Pink Frost’.
A complimentary class begins Saturday at 11 a.m. with Skagit Gardens’ horticulturist, Melanie MacKinnon, who will discuss
these ‘darlings of the winter season’ and their hardy characteristics. An inspiring and educational day for those seeking happy
surprises in their winter gardens.
