Wishing You All a New Year Full of Hellebores

We have, on occasion, been accused of being "helleboring". The first instance was when we made one of our earliest trips to the UK with friends. Of the two couples one pair was very interested in hellebore, the the other pair, not so much. Since our trip was supposedly to visit nurseries specializing in Helleborus, [...]

New life for a loyal friend

Yellow Hellebores.

 In a prior post I wrote about the greening of pale coloured hellebore flowers. This time I am writing about the yellowing of new hellebore foliage. As with the "green flower" calls in spring in autumn we get the "yellow foliage" calls. These usually come from growers who have purchased our Helleborus x hybridus Pine [...]

Why are my hellebores green?

    Every year, especially as summer sets in we get calls like this, people who have planted white or paler coloured flowering hellebore plants notice that their flowers are no longer white. As we speak I try to narrow the species of the hellebore in question down to species which actually open white. Even [...]
