The Christmas Rose is a specific variety of Hellebore called Helleborus niger, or the Black Hellebore. The plant got it’s name from it’s black roots. The flowers actually bloom pure white, sometimes with pale pink markings, and then fade to green and pink as they age. It is also called “Winter Rose” or “Snow Rose.” This hellebore blooms from fall to spring, making it a popular garden flower for those who want flowers in the cold of winter.
This design was originally published in my first book “Christmas Collection.” The book is available as a paperback and Kindle book on Amazon, or as a paperback from other online retailers. You can also get a signed copy from my shop.
December is usually a busy month for most of us, so I am presenting a smaller sized plant than the one in the original design. But, feel free to increase the size of your plant if you have more time and energy to devote to a larger project.
Class Start Date: December 1, 2023
Class End Date: December 31, 2023
Enrollment Deadline: November 24, 2023
You will need to enroll in the class in order to participate during December. To enroll you will need to login to your Bead & Blossom account, or create a new account if you don’t already have one. After enrollment, the first lesson will be available. That lesson has the materials list and info about purchasing kits and bead packs. To access the class at a later date, you will need to login to your account before entering the class.
The videos for this class will remain free, even after the bead-along has ended, because I know we don’t all have tons of time to bead in December. But the PDF will be offered free for enrolled students only during December as a special event. Make sure you download the PDF(s) before the end of December as it will be removed from the class after December 31st.
