Helleborus time

Helleborus time is well and truly upon us. These little niger hybrids are very cute in there vintage terracotta pots. A perfect gift or why not half a dozen down the centre of the table.

Gorgeous bouquet of helleborus x hybridus, mrytle, ivy and cornus. I get confused with the naming of these, some people call them orientalis. You would have to ask Will Mclewin who is an authority on them and peonies at his Phedar Nursery in Romiley. There has been lots of breeding work on hellebores some great colours; blacks, greys and yellows…. they are even doing ones where the flowers face upwards! quite hideous.
