We all have our favourite winter plants and this is one of mine. Although I featured it here last year, the first flower of the prolific ‘Harvington Double White” is photographed again late yesterday afternoon. I have other earlier flowering hellebores and some more recent and pricey specimens from the Stamford based Twelve Nunns nursery. The double white is the best however. One bloom today, prolific exuberance promised for tomorrow. It is easy in this semi-cupped state to see why it is called the Christmas Rose notwithstanding the presence of actual roses still in flower due to a total lack of frost this year.
