All hail hellebores

I was pottering around the garden yesterday and the sun was shining on the hellebores, inviting me to lift their heads and gaze into their faces. I just had to get the camera out. My selection is not comprehensive but here are a few of them that have been in the garden for years. If you do not have any in your garden, rush out and get some this weekend. The pleasure they give is out of proportion to the care they need – few plants are easier to grow in part shade.

    Love the jet black one! I’ve never seen one quite so black before.

      Yes it is a really good colour. The plant is not the strongest but it is worth putting up with that for the colour

    An excellent recommendation for a lovely range of plants. Ours are so prolific.
