I think I am a convert

JillPJune 2, 2003

I got my one and only Helle. 3 years ago at the end of the season. It was a poor pitiful little thing with no name on it. I think I got it for $1. Well, for three years it did ver little. One blossom, foilage tatty and very little. This year it took off. It is now over a foot tall and wide. It still has flowers on it from March. They started out a pale dusty rose green. The leaves are really cool. I know I have just a basic common one, but it sure is nice. Maybe I will have to devote less space to hostas so I can get a few more (don't tell the people on the hosta forum!)

Yes, by all means grow more! Hostas are great, but hellebores are better. :-)
