Lets talk about Hellebores Orientalis .

Helleborus Orientalis Are growing here at Field of blooms nursery for over 20 years and are knowing for many gardeners and hellebores enthusiasts.

Many people have found the nursery here in Co Tipperary during the flowering seasons over the last years to search for the best winter flowering plants for their garden displays and or collection.

The best time to see them in flower is from December to April as most of the Hellebores here are grown in large pots to have the plants developed to see the real flower the bear.

The Hellebores can take a long time before the flower for the first time to see the make-up of the flowers, as they are going to be year after year and give You a great show of color during the cold winter months, the also a great addition to the bees as the welcome the pollen so early in the year.

The thrive in almost any conditions ore soil and will make a nice clump of plant in years to come.

A better choice is to visit the nursery in person and You see what You get home with, no surprises after and disappointed with what You got.

Hellebores are most all grown from seed growing but need some patience time before You see them flowering for the first time, containing some astoundingly beautiful specimens, some could take 3 or 4 years to see what You get and by the time they could be in large pots grown, Re You visit in person would be recommended.

Tough as old boots like our primroses, hellebores are the perfect partners with glorious harmonising colours of pinks, whites, purples, greens and yellows some with picotee edging. There are also some lovely double and anemone centred forms which are much in demand.

True the past 20 years there are sure many plants collected here from home grown who found a place in my own garden, the never give any trouble to grow and perform every season, flowering during the winter months when little else is showing, with plants producing up to 40 flower heads.
After the finish flowering the produce nice fresh green leaves for the rest of the summer months. (And some shade for Snowdrops planted around them).
November is the time the begin to show the have done there bid for the long year and leaves begin to show some dark spots, this is the time the should be removed by cutting back to near ground level. ( And give the Snowdrops there space for Spring).
