Hellebores and Lavender
in a white pitcher makes a very nice mid-winter arrangement!
This is hellebores foetidus which a friend gave me three years ago. It’s unusual in that it is tall and sort of gangly, unlike most other more compact hellebores. But, like the others, it is a perennial that will self-sow. I love that I can cut it in January and really have some green in the house! To read more about this species, just click here.
Here it is outside, just this morning:
And here is my hellebores niger, always a pleasure to see in late winter!
These do seem to be a favorite for me (and all of you!) because I’ve done a post a year on them.
