My oldest friend in the world, Lucie (we met the first day of first grade!) called me the other day and told me I must must must grow hellebore! Why I wasn’t growing them already is beyond me.
How could I not have a plant with such a wickedly intriguing name in my garden? And they come in dark brooding colors and are poisonous, which is fabulous! Several times, I have vowed to have a garden with nothing but “black” flowers…but I cannot say no to the others so it just doesn’t happen.
**side note: there is no such thing as a true black flower in nature…only colors that APPEAR black**
These are winter bloomers, so I will probably wait until later this year to get some, but they’re definitely on my list. It’s a long and growing wish list…I’m going to need more dirt!
