You may recall my earlier post , here entitled Helleborus.
Now, several months later, the flower heads have dried on the plant, and have spilled their many seeds. (I'll be watching for little seedlings next Spring)
I can't decide which I like better. The dried or the fresh flowers.
All you have to do is change the water a few times and you will have this unusual and beautiful bouquet for several more months.
What makes the hellebore so special is that it blooms very early. Here, in zone 3, I can start looking for their buds in March.
Helleborus come in many colors, from white to chartreuse, to red, yellow, orange and more.
Next time you are visiting your favorite garden center, look for this unusual and rewarding plant and take it home with you.
