Hellebores by Althea Vivai

Why a hellebore at Christmas?

What is more fascinating than seeing flowers blooming when everything around is sleeping and hiding?
Hellebore, an evergreen with innate elegance and prolonged winter flowering, is ideal both in the garden and on the terrace.
In the language of flowers, hellebore takes on the meaning of change and liberation from a negative state of mind.
In consideration of the historical period, it is imperative to give it as a gift.
Not to mention that it is a mythical, legendary and bee-loving plant.

Why Christmas with Orticolario?

Because Orticolario is a cultural project with charitable purposes: it organizes an event at Villa Erba to promote the culture of the landscape, enhancing the territory.
Because Orticolario continues to research the sense of garden, nature and landscape.
Because Orticolario, with the contributions raised, supports the social projects of charitable associations operating in the area.

Book your ‘Red’: a good luck charm for a friend living in Italy.

And if you don’t have a friend, but you want to support the development of cultural and social projects, make a donation to the “Amici di Orticolario Fund”
