Helleborus Orientalis



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.

  1. I am addicted to hellebores. I've killed at least three (maybe four). I currently have four more planted. I can't stop. It's a sickness.
