Hellebores are in full bloom...
28 Apr 2014
Our hellebores are in full flower now, and always draw comment from guests. The blooms are in shades of purple, pink and white, held up on stems over a foot high. Although they are evergreen we cut all of the foliage off in the winter so that these early flower stems can be seen to best effect.
The plants also self seed, and it's easy to carefully lift some of the many seedlings, pot them up and grow on for new plants. As they hybridise freely you never know what colour flowers your new plants will produce!
