CHRISTMAS ROSES AS POTTED OR CUT FLOWERS IN THE HOME

Winter time is Helleborus time! Christmas Roses, whether potted or cut, are perfect for merry floral decorations in the home and conservatories during the pre-Christmas period. Even after the Christmas holidays, the Christmas Rose is still a beautiful winter flower that helps make the transition from Christmas to spring very versatile. When everything is still grey outdoors, the fresh, wintery white flowers brighten indoor spaces. Placed in a vase "au naturel" without any accessories, the Christmas Rose unfolds its classic beauty especially well. If you like it more luxuriant, simply arrange it with white Persian buttercup (Ranunculus asiaticus), ivy (Hedera) or other plants. And if you absolutely can't wait for spring to come, use pale-hued Snow Roses or bold-coloured Lenten Roses to generate spring feelings long before the first spring bulbs begin to appear.

To ensure you can enjoy Christmas Roses over a long period of time, place them in a cool and light place in your home, as you should Snow Roses and Lenten Roses.

WHITE CHRISTMAS – THE LEAFLESS CHRISTMAS ROSE

There are special Helleborus varieties that are very well suited for flower arrangements in the home and conservatories during the pre-Christmas period. The variety White Christmas® is a Christmas Rose without leaves, which makes it ideal for indoor use. Due to its excellent vase life, it creates the festive season's atmosphere on tabletops and windowsills. Its pure white blooms have a long shelf-life and take on an elegant light green shade as they age.

Placed in as cool a spot as possible, watered regularly and never allowed to get completely dry, White Christmas® will retain its festive grace for a very long time. Waterlogged conditions should be avoided by all means possible. The flowers can be removed once they are finished. White Christmas® can be left over winter in a frost-free shed. As soon as the ground is free of frost in February or March, White Christmas® can be planted in a shaded to partially shaded place in the garden.

CHRISTMAS ROSES AS CUT FLOWERS FOR THE HOME

Used as cut flowers, most Christmas Roses, Snow Roses and Lenten Roses do well in a vase for just over a week, provided they are not placed in an excessively warm environment. This means that you can decorate the house with fresh flowers from your own garden even in winter. You can extend the vase-life by re-cutting the flower stems and changing the water on a daily basis. Do not add flower food to the water on any account!

Floating Lenten Rose flowers

This lovely table decoration is quick to make. Simply pick some flowers from Christmas Roses or different Lenten Rose varieties from your garden and place them in a bowl filled with water. They will float on the water like water lilies. For a more romantic presentation, allow some floating candles to float amidst the blooms.
