HGC® Joshua | compact

Helleborus niger

The perfect Christmas Rose for containers is Joshua. It is hardy and low-care with a compact habit. Its myriad of flowers are perfect for any balcony, terrace and entrance area. If you are looking for a special graveside decoration, simply combine Joshua with low-maintenance ground covers such as bugleweed (Ajuga reptans), ivy (Hedera) or shrubby veronica (Hebe x andersonii). Colourful alum root (Heuchera hybrids) or ornamental grasses add lightness to any arrangement.
