OGC President Gloria McRae's Flower Picks

Helleborus niger Hellebore

This month I have chosen the perennial Hellebore.

Last year a display of Hellebores caught my eye in the early spring at a local Garden Centre. They have blooms like roses in either cream or pink.

Since they are one of the first perennials to bloom in the spring while it is still cold, I put them in my spring planters. They are a shade plant so I moved them to a shady spot in my backyard as the sun got more intense. They continued to flourish. I can see them peeking through already as I look out at my snowy garden. Spring is here!
