Someone save me from the Hellebores!

When the hellebore are blooming during this time of the year I want to buy hundreds of them and plant throughout the garden!

The newer hybrids bloom heavily and for such a long season! Below is the hybrid HCG Jacob.

And that means it is soup season –

Or a very much chicken and dumpling stew

And the Raleigh Farmers Market is loaded with cool season veggies so the combinations are endless!

But than I am surprised when I am walking through Home Depot checking out the Christmas clearance and I spot a table of huge Batflower plants! It is such a rare find!

There are reputed to be difficult to grow in a house so I don’t spend the $34.95 but it was tempting since they are rarely seen. Maybe they will be the next trendy plant?
