A bit of garden therapy put a spring in my step this afternoon. I saw a breathtaking display of hellebores a few days ago at a local garden center, but I left without indulging, telling myself the plants were much too extravagant.
I remained unconvinced. Nearly every hour thereafter visions of those flowers popped into my consciousness bringing regret.
Now I feel better.
Helleborus x hybridus ‘Frostkiss™ Penny’s Pink’ has large forward-facing flowers. Emerging leaves have pink veins.
Helleborus Honeymoon® ‘Vegas Nights’ is described as having slate gray to dark purple blooms. Unlike the other purchases this plant had only one flower, maybe a couple more buds. Hope to see more grayish sepals in the future.
Helleborus x ericsmithii ‘HGC® Champion’ ‘COSEH 940’ PPAF is covered in plenty of creamy flowers with pink accents. These hybrids come with complicated names and I wonder if this tag is really correct. In searching the web for more information, COSEH 940 is most often referred to as ‘HGC Camelot’ and ‘HGC Champion’ is associated with COSEH 730. Hmm!
Helleborus x ericsmithii ‘Pirouette’ PPAF has pink buds which open to white flowers brushed with pink. They become deeper pink as they mature. Foliage is described as blue-green. I bought two of this plant.
Helleborus x b. Gold Collection® Merlin PP#22350
Helleborus x ballardiae ‘COSEH -810’ PP#22350
Outward facing light pink to pink flowers mature to a deep cranberry. Very dark green foliage with dark stems.
Do something nice for yourself today!
