Hellebores are great for giving the garden that pop of color to get us gardeners through to the spring. Jacob Christmas Rose blooms late in November and stays in bloom with semi evergreen leaves through to January. Yes! Flowers in the middle of winter. The deep green, fleshy foliage is resistant to the cold and the deer. Any one that has a woodland garden needs to add Jacob Christmas Rose to the planting. The large white blooms age to a pale green to signal that spring is on the way.
Jacob Christmas Rose looks best when planted in large groups, or as part of a succession planting of different varieties of Hellebore. Their stocky stems and fleshy leaves are not bothered by derr, but may need protection from slugs in the higher hardiness zones where slugs and snails may be active during the winter.
Jacob Christmas Rose Care
Jacob Christmas Rose prefers a soil that is neutral to slightly alkaline. The fleshy root systems need well drained, moist soil. Root rots are more likely to happen if soils are waterlogged through the cold winter months. Full sun to part shade is ideal to promote continued blooming. The blooms are even nice as a cut flower to brighten up the house on a dreary winter’s day.
Fertilizing is done after the plants are finished blooming in the spring.Hellebore grow new leave stems at this time and can use a good boost from a slow release, well balanced fertilizer. Any cutting back of old leaves or bloom stems is also done in the spring. The leaves can be cut down to the ground in the fall to make way for the new flower buds. Cutting back the foliage in fall alsi helps to keep aphids from being a bother.
Jacob Christmas Rose Spacing
The Jacob Christmas Rose is on the smaller side of most Hellebores. Height of 9-12 inches and a width of 12-15 inches. Space the plants at 12 inches, center on center, when planting in large groups. Hellebores also happily live in well drained containers that are 16 inches in diameter or larger.
