Ooh, the Apricot Blush Hellebore is thriving


I am so thrilled that the Apricot Blush Hellebore is doing well in the garden bed.

It is one of our few ornamental plants growing among California natives.

This is the very first Hellebore we ever planted, and it was an experiment, because you just never know if a plant will be happy where it's growing. We've had it for a year now, and it looks like the cold temperatures and plentiful rain is just what the plant likes.

The large blossom has been blooming for weeks, and the other two buds appeared a few days ago.

It is growing in a bright shade area, in rich, well-draining soil.

I provide it with compost made from egg shells, banana peels, used tea bags, and occasional grape seed compost.
