We might get our third ice storm of March, usually we have a nice March. Some of the hellebores got crunched by fallen maple branches, but no plants were destroyed. We did loose two hellebore plants over the winter, Corsican Hellebore(ouch) and a small very dark red plant in the front garden.
We did not buy any new hellebores this year, I dug up and potted 36 baby hellebores for Meg's class and their "Garden Center". We are adding two new Daphnes and a Witch Hazel to the garden, photos below.
The Hellebores featured below, over 30 different ones from our garden and I did not photograph all of them..
Slightly picotee white double hellebore.
Picotee double hellebore.
Swirling Skirts double hellebore!
The ice likely beat this double up.
Semi double hellebore pinkish white.
Double yellow hellebore, picked this up last year. Funny last year when I brought this home it had a slightly pink picotee to it. I like it boldly yellow just the same.
Gold Finch, this took like 4 years to bloom in the garden, babies all under it from last years blooms.
Hard to see, the cold weather affected this one. The white with raspberry edges is hard to see.
One of my biggest blooming plants I started from a seedling.
Penny's Pink not quite open yet!
Helleborus Viridus which was collected in the wild in Northern Italy.
Baby Moon daffodil my favorite daffodil, it is a miniature.
