Pink Beauty Helleborus
I picked this plant up when visiting an Open Day at Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina. It just barely squeaked by during this past summer, and it's formed some new leaves and obviously some blooms since then. I have located in the best plot of shade, and I'm just amazed. At a garden club meeting with a speaker from North Carolina, she asked if helleborus grew here, and everyone said that they didn't. Having only had the plant a few months, I wasn't willing to say that they do, but I'm really beginning to think that this plant will make it. I have some other young helleborus that my sister gave me from her garden, and they seem to be doing well. Go figure!
