I have a couple of hellebores that we've managed to keep alive. They like to grow where the dog likes to sleep on nice winter days - under the trees in the deep leaf mulch we put there. I think the dog has helped kill a few.
The chickens love that leaf mulch, too, which probably accounts for the hellebore casualties that the dog isn't responsible for.
At any rate, this one bloomed beautifully a few weeks ago. It's the Lenten Rose. A red variety. It's worth the wait every year.
