Once established in the garden, I do believe Hellebores are indestructible. Their scissor-edged leaves are tough like leather, they bloom when there is SNOW on the ground, and then their mysterious and seemingly delicate blossoms last for months and months and mon.... they are one of my favorite plants, hands down.
Here are some hot-n-heavy Hellebores in bloom in my mom and stepdad’s garden last spring, just to give you an idea of their fierce beauty, and a peek at some of the colors. If you do a Google search, you’ll see that the range is huge, and many times the colors are combined in the same plant. From pure white to ivory, from the palest lemon to intense chartreuse, through every intensity of pink, into deep purple, blue... and even black.

|Delicate or indestructible? You be the judge!|
