The red shades of hellebore are blooming.

I have purchased hellebore throughout the years and the red shades are a favorite.

They seem to be in the same range of a reddish hue but a few of them also have dark foliage, too.

I would like to add more of the named varieties such as the Pine Knot hybrids, especially, the spotted shades.

I do have two white Pine Knott hybrids with burgundy foliage. The are very heavy bloomers.

Hellebore also have a habit of seeding prolifically. When left to their own they form colonies. I am betting on this habit to create colonies around my garden, too!

I also have this one named Dark Lady

And this one, also.

Hopefully, these all will create a nice colour pallet around the yard in winter.

  2. I like the Dark Lady Hellebore. I think these plants would die in my backyard. 😦 It gets to be about 104F where I live.
