    SHADE BEAUTIES

    These lesser know perennials add excellent, unique color for the shade. Hellebores are at their peak in the late winter and very early spring before anything else in the garden is thinking about coming alive. Add these to your shady flowerbeds with Azaleas, Camellias and ferns!

    How to grow

    Treat Hellebores like you do any other acid loving plant in our climate. Feed with Gardner & Bloome Rhododendron, Azalea and Camellia fertilizer 2-3 times per year. Water as needed being careful not to over water and that’s about it! As long as you prepare and maintain the soil for them, they will thrive for you!

    Happy Hellebore Season!

    Additionally I had a question if you could grow Hellebores in pots. Yes, you can but they will die to the ground in late summer which is why they are best as accents and not a focal point.
