Hellebores/Lenten Roses - Lin Frye

Hellebores/Lenten Roses

These wonderful, shade-loving plants, are in full bloom at my friend's home. While they come in many colors, she grows mostly whitish/pinkish/purple and some wonderfully dark maroon. These 18"-24" high plants are perennial, deer, pest and drought resistant, heat tolerant and gorgeous! Now if we only had more shade at the Arboretum, we could grow some here! LOL

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I hope everyone enjoys something GREEN today!

We're off for our first oral history interview this morning. We have a small grant to interview the gardeners in our county to record their stories and photograph their gardens, and hopefully, receive a garden contribution for the Pass-Along Garden we're creating. Should be fun!

Hope your day is terrific!

  1. Wow, these are just gorgeous! I hope I remember to get some (bulbs? Corms? Rhizomes?) to plant...

  2. Lovely! If they are deer resistant...I must get some!
