Never thought that I’d ever say this, but I do love my hellebores! For over 35 years, I didn’t plant these gems because the lovely blossoms faced down instead of up. I know; dumb reason! Then I started seeing newer hybrids that somewhat faced sideways and were varied colors and shapes. Finally, I just couldn’t resist!
If you have a shaded area, do try these since they not only have long-lasting blossoms, but the leaves stay a wonderful glossy green throughout much of the year. Enjoy!


  1. My mother has these wonderful plants in her garden. So beautiful. Annette x

  2. Oh wow, Barbara, these are gorgeous!!! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  3. Wow! I love these flowers!!! They're so pretty :)

  4. I love Hellibores too. As you say they are wonderful shade-loving plants. They do mostly face downwards; I wonder why they are so shy. Perhaps we could grow them in baskets then we could look up into their beautiful faces. Your photos are amazing!
