Hellebores- Lenten Roses



Hellebores are magnificent spring blooming plants that not only thrive in shade in Middle Tennessee, but look good all season. After last summer’s awful early drought and 107 degree heat in an unwatered garden I work in, I had only to chop down the burned leaves, and fresh green ones sprung up.

They also self seed, and if one has the time and patience, seedlings can be spaced out as ground covers under trees and shrubs. And one never knows what color they will be.

The second photo is of a new cultivar called “Ivory Prince”.Photos were taken in the garden of Mrs George Rosenthal in Bellevue, Tennessee.
