Hellebores are one of the mainstays of my shade garden; in addition to being extremely easy to grow and tolerant of neglect, they bloom in January and February when not much else is going on in the garden. The white hellebores are usually the first to open in January...
Followed closely by the rose-pink varieties.
The purple ones open in early February
And I'm still waiting for the "almost-black" hellebore, which always seems to be the last to bloom.
