Dogtooth violet loves Hellebore
One of my favorite combinations in the garden is hellebores with Trout Lillies. The hellebores come up nice and early, but last a very long time, their lovely blooms shifting through all those interesting phases in appearance. The trout lillies start to bloom during this show, and are wonderful to place in front of the hellebores. They are a fantastic woodland combination and very easy to care for under the right conditions.
