Say Hello to more of Kellie's Hellebores!

A forum to discuss and share pictures of Helleborus plants.

This one is kind of strange. Not my favorite Hellebore, but its upward facing habit is interesting.

And more of that Spring Ebony and Galanthus.

And, one of a black Hellebore in the Mardi Gras series that I picked up the other day. I have tons of my own and tons of Kellie's, yet I still need to buy one at the nursery??? I think I need psychiatric help.

Kellie, come out and play!

Hey, I found some seedlings underneath this picotee Hellebore this morning. Last year's babies are making an appearance!

Do you realize the torment and withdrawal I'm going through, Miss Doris? Cruel and unusual punishment!!

boring?? maybe outrageous, but boring??? :wink: There is one in there that I'd keep Thelma away from. It looks like it might be carnivorous!

KellieD, I feel your pain. I am thousands of miles away from my hellebores. :cry: But thankfully, there is the internet! So, here are a few photos I received today from my babysitter.... my mom.

Wow! Some spectacular photos there! I have two hellebores in the same bed that are both drooping and going limp (for lack of a better description). All my others are doing fine. I think I'll be out in the rain today digging them up, checking the roots, and cleaning them off and putting them into quarantine. Must be something in the soil of that specific perennial bed that they just don't like, though they've been there for three years without any problems thus far. Strange...

Keep the photos coming!

I love this one. Kellie, there's a nice yellow in the batch. This one opened up, and then it started to face upward. Very cool.

nice photos Doris. they are all nice. the yellow with fluted nectaries is unique. Does that first red also have red nectaries? It is a nice color. Red is difficult in hellebores; most tend to be more of a magenta.

Well Doris - If you run out of room, you could always let me babysit some of Kellie's too LOL! Her epimediums are just about to start blooming, and the toadies are all coming up.
