There’s not much out in the garden yet to pair with these delightful hellebore flowers. They are much too sophisticated to hang out with daffodils. Their exquisite beauty works singularly, en masse, luckily.
This frilly double white below is graceful with just a few blooms. After this photo, I snipped them to about 7-inches long and brought them in a tiny vase to Kendra. She was visibly taken by their beauty. But , of course, who wouldn’t be smitten?
Hellebores love shade, are deer resistant (yeah!), remain evergreen, bloom very, very early Spring, and are one of the most intriguing flowers.
Purchase them in bloom, for the colors vary considerably. Some are a quite murky and dismal greenish-purple.
They are beautiful as a bridal bouquet at a time when there’s nothing out in the garden. Add some twigs for an architectural statement.
