I made a center piece of hellebore flowers from my garden for a luncheon yesterday, and it was so pretty I took a picture of it - here it is. These are all helleborus orientalis, but all different colors, and some doubles.

I love all of them. I really like the yellow double and the pink double to the lower right in the photo. A very nice arrangement.

Just beautiful. I love the dark one in the upper left side most. Thanks so much for posting.

RE: bowl of hellebore blooms

Gorgeous! I love the doubles! Do you do any trading of seeds or plants? I have several singles and a red double.

RE: bowl of hellebore blooms

You have inspired me to try and duplicate your centerpiece, but I have a question for you helleborus mavens.

I am traveling about 30 minutes to where I want to display it.
Should I cut my flowers with a long stem and put them in a vase for travel, then trim them shorter to float once I get there?
Or trim them short to begin with and put them in a bag or tupperware or something?
And how much stem do I leave?
I don't want to be driving with a platter full of water and blooms beside me, lol.

This is my first attempt at something artsy so I would really like if it went well. I have a lovely dark purple platter which will compliment the blooms beautifully.
Think I should take some large leaves, or fern fronds, or something else for border texture or just stay with the simple helleborus display?
I may wander my yard Sunday morning to see what I have available, just cannot decide.

Who else has done this and do you have photos?

Both of you, those arrangements are gorgeous, and inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing. That greenery (arborvitae?) does a lot for your floating arrangement, cearbhaill.

I have just one plant, but I am excited to see it has a couple of babies this year, so eventually I may have some variety of blooms.

RE: bowl of hellebore blooms

Jacqueline and Cearbhaill those are beautiful! Do either of you have extra seeds or baby plants to share. I have one plant and have never gotten any baby plants so it must not have viable seed. Thanks!
