Tag Archives: Variegated Hellebore

Saving the best till last

I know we have all been putting hellebore on our posts for a few weeks now and we are getting a bit hellebore bored but, I do have something to share. Many years ago, could be around 30 years ago, an elderly lady gave me a hellebore plant that always grew variegated leaves, in those days I was a novice gardener and didn’t know a hellebore from my elbow. Well for all these years this plant has given me a few straggly variegated leaves and no flowers, that is until this year. Finally I have flowers that to me look quite stripey and the leaves at the back of the flowers are definitely variegated. Now is this a new type of hellebore or are you going to tell me that you have one too. I would love to know…..
