In the late winter or early spring, is there any plant with more ephemeral beauty than the Hellebore?
Granted, you have to stand on your head to see some of them, but according to many yoga practices and Martha Stewart, inversion is a good way to refresh the body and relieve stress.
So is this.
I am still waiting for another one, ‘Honeyhill Joy’ to bloom. It will be yellow/white against dark green foliage. So far, it’s all foliage, because it is a young plant. I’m also waiting on two more I’ve ordered from Heronswood, ‘Ivory Prince’ and ‘Phoebe.’ After I paid a premium for these, I saw that one variety, ‘Ivory Prince’ was now available at Lowe’s. I’m listing the name of the box store so that anyone local who wants an ‘Ivory Prince’ Hellebore will run on over there and get it. Please do.
I’ve sworn off buying plants for Lent, although I’m very tempted. I’ll live vicariously through you. It’s the store on 2nd and Bryant in Edmond. Go ahead, you know you want to.
