I have blooms!

kim31kimApril 1, 2004

I am so excited... I was weeding my shade garden today and discovered that one of my hellebores is blooming. This is the first bloom I've had, I planted them last summer. I've never spent so much on a perennial, but it was well worth it! They others that I have are getting much bigger and they look great against the dark colored mulch I have down.

Do I need to do anything special to them this spring? Fertilize etc? Do you dead head them like other plants?

Hellebores are big on my wish list. Boy was I surprised when I visited various friends in AL to find that they all had hellebores. So possibly in the pipeline for fall, I'll get some hellebores. They are beautiful.

Congratulations on your blooms.

Me too. My older one has been blooming since early to mid March. It is its third year blooming here. The new one does not look like it will bloom this year. I do nothing special. I have a raised bed to which I added some compost and keep mulched. It gets squirted with Miracle Grow about three times a summer like everything else. Here is a picture.
