These two hellebores are neighbors near the edge of an east-facing deck. Pink flower is a bit north of east, and the white one is a touch south of due east.
My white hellebore had a baby! Over to the left, a seed germinated and a new plant was born. The baby is a minimum of 2 years old, because I noticed it growing there at least that long ago. Behind the white blossoms, the ferns under the edge of the deck, are naturalized.
At a friend’s house recently, I saw a multi-flowered pink hellebore in a pot. It was beautiful. She lives and gardens in the shadow of some very tall evergreen trees.
I had ‘plant envy’. How did she get her hellebore to bloom so prolifically?
