Helleborus on the way!

Monday, 09 Jun 08 Sunny 25°C / 77°F

I am so excited becuase I finally found helleborus (Royal Heritage) on sale for cheap ($5 a plant!) and I ordered them yesterday. I ordered three.

One will go in the shade right next to the back deck against the house. The other two will go in the shady spot inside the gate and along the fence in the back yard. I have to clear out some leaves to put them in there, but it will be worth it. It will also hopefully help motivate me to keep the leaves from piling up in those spots. I am really looking forward to putting these plants in.
