Hello Hellebore!

What can be more breathtaking on a cold, wet December day, than the sight of Helleborus niger lighting up the darkest corner of the garden like a string of glowing lanterns. Just the usual white Christmas Rose, but what a joy to see it….:o))

Lovely! Not much sign of bud on mine except the one I bought recently. Loads of Flores on yours janey.

1 Jan, 2013

 

So it seems that you got all the blooms Janey, not a one on any of my four plants.

1 Jan, 2013

 

some of mine are open but not as pretty as these.

1 Jan, 2013

 

What a lot of great comments...thanks everyone....:)))

This is the first year that these have had so many flowers....I'm thinking it may be the amount of rain last year, or just that they have established themselves well now. I've noticed where a few of the leaves have bent down to the soil, they have taken root, so more new plants....:)))

Readbythepond....it is native to the mountainous regions of northern europe so would be used to very low temperatures, though prefers a sheltered place away from freezing winds. You could give them a try and see what happens. When these have finished flowering, maybe I could send you some seeds over??

Aw, sorry Karen and Stroller....I am a bit greedy....:)))

Happy New Year everyone.....let's hope we have a drier gardening year this year!!! XX

These are stunning Janey, very jealous mine don;t seem to be doing anything, never done very well since i had them 6yrs ago. Its a mauve/pink one much prefer the white one. Can I have some seeds when they've finished flowering Pretty Please :-)))))
Happy New Year to you and yours .

Thanks Janey,
I would love some of the seeds from those gorgeous plants.
Happy New Year!

Yes you're more than welcome Gralew.....and some for you Lisa......I'll need your addresses when they're ready...:). Happy New year too girls...:))

Oh a very busy holiday then Amy, I bet your grandsons loved it! Hope you aren't too tired out, your little Hellebore is looking nice and healthy too......Happy New Year to you and Tony X

They really are Driad....especially when you think the flower buds come straight up from the wet winter soil....what better way to greet the new year, have a great 2013!

2 Jan, 2013

 

They're beautiful Janey, i have some seedlings from when I visited Tetrarch, still babies though. I wonder how she is? Happy New Year to you and yours:-)

2 Jan, 2013

 

Absolutely gorgeous. Mine has just got some very sad looking last years leaves and no sign of a bud anywhere. I'm going to look for one of the tall growing pink ones soon.

Happy New Year Ba, I think they take 3 years before they flower....:((. I haven't seen Tet on here for ages, I hope she's okay???
Thanks Stera....yes I love them all, I think the coloured types flower a bit later, so something to look forward too....:))
They are a picture Balc.....normally the corner where they are is drab and colourless in winter but these really bring it alive, and right behind, Mahonia Charity, with it's yellow blossom spikes just beginning to flower....:))

7 Jan, 2013

 

That corner must look fabulous now! :-))
