First hellebore

Spotted this week - our first hellebore to flower.


I'd better get cracking trimming off old leaves.

This was the first plant to flower last year too.

  1. It seems early for a hellebore but if it flowered at the same time last year, you'd think that it's going to be a regular thing for this particular plant.

    1. I don't know why this one is always so early, Jo and it carries on when the others come out.

  2. Wonderful. I'm surprised to see one already, but it's a lovely thing to have at this time of year.

    1. I was too CJ and then I checked the old photos and realised that I should have expected it.

  3. I've seen one too, a white one. Quite a surprise really as up to now it's always bloomed at the usual time, late winter.
    Yours is gorgeous.

    1. Is it the lower growing hellebore niger, Jessica? Slugs ate the flowers on mine last year.

  4. It's a pretty looking flower too Sue. I've had a Hellebore flowering all summer, which has been nice.

  6. None of my Hellebores flowered at all this year (last Winter), despite some buds on the biggest one. Hopefully I'll be luckier this time.

    1. Fingers crossed for both of us Mark, I planted sine new ones last year that I'll be looking out for.

  7. How early Sue. Looked at mine today and was relieved that there are no signs of colour as yet.

  8. That's early! I had a couple flower in the summer, but I think that's because I moved them and they got all in a dither.
