Despite winter frost and enormous cold outside, there are some flowers that delight in the cold season eye and soul. These belong to the genus Helleborus and bloom from January to April. Despite the bad weather outside, we do not want to and can not do without their natural beauty, because these flowers are a joy to us and bring a lot of charm to our four walls or decorate the winter garden outside.
Today we want to direct our attention in a certain way, and to report something in more detail about the Christmas rose.
The delicate white flowers of the Christmas rose are not afraid of cold and frost
Like all other Helleborus species, the Christmas rose (still called Snow Rose) is very long-lived. She can delight you for decades with her beautiful, white flowers. The best planting time is in October. Outside in the garden you can group the Christmas rose with other perennials or spring bloomers and get a noble appearance a few months later. But if you want to plant them in the tub or pot, then you need high flower containers, because the Christmas rose develops a deep root system. The best soil mixture would be from potting soil and loamy garden soil. But you have to make sure you have a good drainage.

It brings elegance and charm to your interior
Many garden fans want to put the white beauty into the garden shortly after Christmas. Of course this is possible, but you have to choose the right location for your Christmas roses. Recommended would be a place where it is dry and shady in summer. The delicate flower does not like the warm temperatures and should not be exposed to them. This also applies to their care at home. The best location for the Schneerose would be a cool bedroom or the conservatory.

In December, the Christmas rose can illuminate your interior and become a blooming pot jewelry at home. However, be careful because the white beauty is very poisonous and must be kept away from small children and pets. In addition, the delicate flower does not like the dry air, is sensitive to waterlogging and must be properly maintained in principle.

And do you perhaps know why the Christmas rose is exactly that and what meaning it has?
The attempt to cultivate these beautiful flowers in such a way that they bloom at Christmas, looks back on a long tradition. An old legend tells of the actual origin of their name. It is the following: A poor shepherd wanted to come to Bethlehem but did not have a gift for baby Jesus and was very sad. But in winter he could not find flowers on his way. Then he cried and his tears fell to the ground. Surprisingly, they developed beautiful white flowers that looked like roses. The shepherd plucked them and brought the beautiful flowers as a gift to the baby Jesus.
Certainly there is something of this legend in our efforts to decorate the festive table for Christmas these days with these white, delicate roses. We try to arrange the Christmas roses so that they serve as an eye-catcher in every Christmas decoration. Because with their flower splendor they brighten our everyday life and make the winter more pleasant!
