Plant: Hellebore (Helleborus) | Variety: Christmas Rose

  • Very Happy

i bought one in Jan 2011 to add some color to the entry, then planted it out after it was done blooming, but in a tough spot by the street in poor soil with irregular water. I bought 2 more in Nov 2012 for a thanksgiving planter by the door which i will plant out in spring 2013

This is an exceptionally obliging and undemanding plant.
