Hellebore Pre-Order | Christmas Hurrah! Dec 2-4, 2016 

Plan for Christmas: Plan now for holiday decorating indoors & out by pre-ordering your hellebores for pick-up at the Christmas Hurrah! December 2nd-4th, 2016. Our plants are top quality - they are the biggest, fullest, and most packed with buds available in our region. The Christmas roses also make great gifts during the holiday season. You can purchase them la carte or choose to doll them up with extra sparkle as part of our Do-It-Yourself Indoor Christmas Rose Container. And don't forget to sign up for some of our fun Christmas Rose Workshops.

Plan for Winter: We're also offering other winter-blooming hellebores to keep your garden beautiful through January and February. The information below is organized by when each cultivar starts blooming*. Choose plants from each bloom period for a succession of blooms to keep your spirits bright from December through March! 

While we will still have extra hellebores on hand at the Christmas Hurrah!, pre-ordering helps us get the numbers just right ensuring you get everything you desire! We will not have a lot of extra. So choose your plants now and plan out your winter garden in advance! Last year many people did not pre-order and we sold out of our extra plants before everyone got what they wanted. We can't bring in a lot of extra plants at this time of year that are not pre-ordered. Please pre-order to avoid disappointment.

Ordering Instructions: Review the hellebore descriptions and images below, write down on a piece of paper the cultivars and quantities you would like, then click Register Now at the bottom of this page. You'll be taken to the ordering page where there are descriptions but no images so best to make your decisions while still perusing this page. Enjoy.
