Many gardens fade quietly into winter, but not yours. You can announce winter with an explosion of showy double white blooms with Snowbells Christmas Rose. Chartreuse stamens add a refreshing contrast. This tidy hybrid stays under 12 inches tall and only grows 14 inches wide, thriving in exposures from partial to full shade. The flowers nourish pollinators, from bees to hummingbirds, when they need it most, and the notched foliage is a handsome evergreen presence all year.

Snowbells is a hybrid from helleborus niger, aka the Christmas Rose, and is one of the earlier hellebores to flower. The flowers are held more sideways than many later-blooming types, showing them off nicely. Hellebores are classic low-maintenance performers in shady garden beds and borders and for offering seasonal color in winter patio pots with, for instance, red-twig dogwood stems, winter heaths, and wintergreen. Hellebore blooms are long-lasting both in the garden and when cut, making a charming display floating in a bowl.

Snowbells Christmas Rose Care

Hellebores like a shady location away from the hottest west-facing sun, which can scald their leaves. They prefer rich organic soil; they can thrive in either sandy or clay soil with a pH from neutral to alkaline. Once their roots have become established, they are surprisingly drought-tolerant, making them a candidate for tough spots under deciduous trees, as long as there is root space. The first few years, water well during the growing season, keeping the soil moist but not wet.

Hellebores are only moderate feeders, so for fertilizer, some aged cow manure (not fresh) or compost is a welcome addition in spring. Alternatively, consider applying controlled-release fertilizer once in spring. A deep organic mulch will keep moisture in the soil and may encourage seedlings to sprout which can be transplanted in early spring.

Snowbells Christmas Rose Spacing

Allow at least 12 inches of space between your Snowbells Christmas Roses to allow for enough root space when the plants mature.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
