In A Vase On Monday – Cream To Green

In A Vase On Monday – Cream To Green

Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase highlighting what is growing in our gardens.

A dreamy creamy Hellebore, one I have featured before, called my attention again this week. This hybrid purchased from Pine Knot Farms in Virginia in 2016 has been magnificent this season.

Now that the plant has been in bloom for a few weeks it is interesting to observe how the early ivory buds open to reveal green at center and on the outermost petals before maturing to delicate green.

    Gorgeous! Hellebores just get better and better as the weeks go by and what wonderful hybrids are around now. This is such a pretty one and perfect in the blue mug.

    A true beauty and you know what really amazes me is the fact that all flowers are pristine and without blemishes. Light coloured varieties are often more sensitive. And the flowers go very well with your vase too.

      Thanks Noelle. The light was so poor inside I took my plant stand outside on the front porch to catch the last natural light. I love our blue front door.

    I love to see this dreamy creamy hellebore of yours, Susie – and it never ceases to amaze me how well they last for you, without any conditioning….you must have a magic touch!

        People have shared all sorts of tips, but we still haven’t a definitive method – perhaps the hellebores are telling us they don’t want to be cut! 😁

    Ooh, so pretty! Enjoy all those gorgeous blooms while they last Susie! I have planted a yellow one, but still no buds this year… maybe next year.

    What is it about hellebores? Last year, everyone was talking about snowdrops. This year, it is more about hellebores. There are a few that were planted here years ago, but they do not like our climate. It is no something that I would have planted. I might appreciate them more if they looked like yours.

    Such a beauty, I love that the ivory fades to chartreuse and the flowers are still held as high. I bet when you bought the plant you didn’t suspect you’d someday have enough to cut a handful for the house. I hope your new ones do just as well.
