So pretty .. I've had 2 in my Woodlands Garden for about 5 years and they up and just plain disappeared this year having never bloomed. I'm hoping they come back in the Spring bringing some blooms with them!
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
If they are still there maybe they will push up a bloom for you this winter, then push up some new foliage in the spring. I don't think animals would eat them like bunnies or deer?
Susan, looking forward to your pictures.
I get the Beter Homes and Gardens Country Gargen Magazine and there is a nice article on helebores. Pine Knot Farms is featured, looks like a beautiful place with all the hellebore inder the tree canopy. They are going to be open to the public last Friday and Saturday of Feb. and 1st Friday and Saturday in March, located in Clarksville, VA. Any of you live close, wish I could go.
