FEBRUARY PLANT OF THE MONTH HELLEBORE

I've written about Hellebore (Lenten Rose) before but since they are usually in full bloom in February I decided to feature them as Plant of The Month.

There is something very exciting about going out into garden on a cold winter day and finding a spectacular bloom like this in the garden! I have several Hellebore and quite a few little seedlings that have yet to bloom. The seedlings that pop up every year around the mama plant often have coloration that much different than the parent plant. Read more about how to grow them here and here  My friend at work introduced me to her brother, David Culp, America's Hellebore expert - I was so thrilled to meet him! Here is a link to his wonderful garden book.
