Aren't they just great and they just get on with the job in hand.

They are indeed, Fran. Who would be without them?

Hard to pass them at this time of year. The dark one is gorgeous.

Beautiful Fran - the dark one is gorgous. I am back in Huntingbrook and Jimi was suggesting planting them in Raised beds which is a very good idea so you can get close and have a good look

Mary, I had only been thinking that the other day.

So lovely, Fran.

Flowers are super, Fran. You have the power.

Never even knew they existed until I joined this wonderful site! Now I have them everywhere and they are just stunning plants.

I too love the dark ones but I have yet to see a bad looking Hellebore.

Mary that is a terrific idea as its hard to photograph them naturally when you have to almost lie down on your back to get a photo without having to raise its head!

They're great and they last so long.

Wonderful plants indeed and three good ones there Fran, love the dark one.

Raised beds -that's the answer and also at the fromt edge if you wish to take pictures of them.  I was taking pictures of mine over the last few days, and each time I had to quit as my back could not bend that low and still manage the camera, and hold their  heads up.  

Twenty years ago they were so very expensive and there were very few double varieties.
