Chosen by the leading Belgian HELLEBORUS breeders Het Wilgenbroek as their best form of 'Christmas Rose', 'Special Selection' boasts amazing single polar white flowers that draw and hold your gaze.  Simple, pure and elegant each flower head is formed of five petals that encircle a large crown of pale sulphur yellow stamens, held high on deep red stems with contrasting leathery evergreen foliage.

Beloved by bees and winter pollinators, this is one of the first hellebores to flower in the garden, sometimes from early December, lighting up shadier areas.  Catch the naturalistic trend and display your potted 'Special Selection' inside the house this Christmas before planting it out or float individual picked blooms in a shallow dish of water, where they will last and last.  It thrives in any good or reasonably fertile soil in partial shade. 

Irritant to the skin, harmful if eaten.
