Winter Jewels® at Northwest Garden Nursery
Flowering between January and May, depending on your climate, hellebores are prized for their sturdy, undemanding temperament and the striking colors and beauty of their flowers.
Since 1992, we at Northwest Garden Nursery have been raising hellebores and hybridizing plants from the best growers in England, Germany, and the USA. We have been selecting plants that we consider superior in foliage and flower. We hand-pollinate all our stock plants, which are kept isolated from other pollinators, and we have made dramatic improvements in color and form each year. We ruthlessly discard any inferior stock plant. Our aim is to produce consistent improvement in clarity of flower color, vigor, and foliage.
The nursery still focuses exclusively on our Winter Jewels® hellebore breeding program to meet the growing demand for outstanding quality in color and form of this exceptional perennial.

Thank you so much for your beautiful hellebores!…over the years I’ve gotten to know a lot of hellebores from a lot of breeding programs. Yours are simply the best. Truly, the depth and clarity of the colours, the size and form of the flowers, the robustness of the plants — all are top notch.”
