Do you know the Lenten Rose - Hellebores x hybrids? I have 5 varieties and this one continues to impress me. This is Ivory Prince hellebore and it started blooming about 2 weeks ago (for Christmas!) and has blooms that face up rather than hang down like many of the other varieties.
The foliage is the most consistent evergreen of my varieties.
Look how this stands out among the other winter branches in my garden today.
Hellebores like shade, bloom for around 3 months, once established are quite drought tolerant, get about 2' high and 2' wide, and can live for decades. They also have a wide growing zone - zone 2-10.
