RE: First hellebore has opened

Gorgeous picture. Which type of hellebore is this? The foliage is different from mine.

I noticed that I still have a white verbena ('Snowflurry') blooming and my winter jasamine has several blossoms. Hurry up, spring!

RE: First hellebore has opened

I'm jealous.....but after seeing your picture I poked around mine and have found the first bud.


RE: First hellebore has opened

Mine have been loaded with flowers for a little while now. I noticed them about a week and a half ago.

RE: First hellebore has opened

I noticed last week that my hellebores were also blooming. I was totally surprise to see my lonicera fragrantissima (Sweet Breath of Spring) shrub blooming this early. Ah... what a sweet fragrance!

RE: First hellebore has opened

I took pic's of helleborus and mahonia blooming on Christmas day. Hellebors are still blooming but the mahonia is almost done. Daffodills have been blooming since Jan. 15th here in West TN. A couple of days ago I noticed a pear tree that is starting to open buds and a star magnolia blooming.

RE: First hellebore has opened

I have Crocus blooming right now but that's it.

Did anyone get those Hellebore from the Middle Tennessee Plant Swap? :-)
