The Christmas rose has large, round, white flat-faced flowers and leathery, deep green foliage. However it cannot always be guaranteed to flower at Christmas - many plants do not flower until the same time as other hellebores, later in the spring. The best way to be sure of getting an early flowering strain is to visit a garden centre at Christmas and pick a plant actually in flower then. Christmas rose can also be grown in pots of John Innes potting compost and kept under cover in a cold frame, sunroom or frost-free greenhouse to encourage earlier flowering. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
