1 Helleborus niger 'Nell Lewis' Strain
Pine Knot Farms introduced this seed strain selection of Helleborus niger, commonly called The Christmas Rose from the garden of native plant enthusiast Nell Lewis. It has proved to be vigorous and almost always in flower at Christmas in our garden. We think this may be the easiest to grow of all the Helleborus niger forms. Fertile plants will produce seedlings. 12" x 12" Zone 4/9
2 Helleborus x hybridus 'Shirley's Snow Stars' Strain
Seedlings from a group of double white flowering Lenten Roses bred at Pine Knot Farms and named for Shirley Nicolai president of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. While, like all seedling grown hellebores, each plant is slightly different, all have double white flowers. These long blooming plants will withstand the withering winter winds and offer a stunning show of white flowers every year. Fertile plants will produce seedlings. Zone 4/9
3 Helleborus x ericsmithii 'Pirouette'
This clone is a European introduction that has performed well in our gardens for several years. A sterile hybrid between H. niger and H. x sternii, 'Pirouette' will produce many flowers throughout the season. An excellent container plant with pink buds that open to cream blooms blushed with mauve, flowers age through dusky mauve to silvery taupe. Zone 4 or 5/9
