Gold Collection Hellebores Sale at Mahoney's
"Gold Collection Hellebores" are reduced from 20 bucks to 12 at Mahoney's in Winchester.
Buyer beware: they have gorgeous flowers in shades of lemon-white, green, pinky-greens. But they are all terribly pot bound; most have a mass of big roots circling the pot. I think they were also left out in the rain last week because the soil is sodden.
You have the chance to get a beautiful plant for not-so-much-money, but there's a risk the roots will rot. However, if you are patient and tease the root ball apart, and repot in new soil I think it has a good chance of surviving.
Don't bother trying to find one that isn't root bound. I knocked almost every plant out of its pot (I was very surprised a clerk didn't come over) You can find some with healthier roots than others. Don't buy it if you can't get it out of the pot to see the rootball.
They are in the main greenhouse on a circular display within sight of the first cashier. There is a much bigger display to the left of the cut flower department. I didn't knock those 40 out of their pots, so you are on your own.
Let me know if you find something. I bought a smaller one with less rootball, and another where the roots look healthy and I like the flower color.
