  1. Oh wow, the Elegance White particularly took my breath away. Can you tell me about the plant? What temperatures does it like?

    • Hellebores are hardy from zones 4-9 (according to what I found online). I’m in zone 8a. They prefer a sunny spot but I have mine in the shade and they do fine. If you really want a specific color, make sure you purchase one that’s blooming. You can also order online from folks that can guarantee the bloom color. Otherwise, they tend to look different than the color on the tag. I love Hellebores because they’re the first thing to bloom in my garden – WAY before everything else. I hope this helps.

  2. Look at YOU! WOW! Beautiful!!! I absolutely love hellebores, especially the doubles. Mine are under two feet of snow at present. I’ll see them someday and maybe they’ll even have flower buds!

  3. I absolutely LOVE those snowdrops! It doesn’t really get cold enough here for a healthy crop like you have, so whenever I see them my heart melts just a little…I wish I could grow them!

    • The helleborus are so beautiful and exotic (at least to my Texan eyes). And the snowdrops so hopeful.

    Such pretty hellebores – especially the double pink one (my favorite)! And those snowdrops are beautiful. Nice to get a glimpse of what will hopefully be coming soon up here in the frozen north!

  13. You have a lot blooming there! When I saw your double Hellebore on an earlier post, it was the one the convinced me to find one for myself. I love yours!
    I love the glass balls, did you find them at the garden show or somewhere else? I still want to find one or two more for my pond.
