More Blooms!

Postby doublemom2 » Feb 14, 2010 7:39 pm

Lots of nice hellebore blooms out there today :) Seeing Mike's photos made me run outside during a sun break and take pix of mine :)

This is a gorgeous double peach colored one:

And my all time favorite, right by my front door. It's a double picotee:

A few others have buds but aren't open yet. Some of my hellebores are sulking after our move and being pot-bound for a year :( Hopefully next year they'll all perk up and bloom better.

Enjoy!

Those are fantastic! I'm finally starting to get some double flowering ones growing here too, though I sure hope they turn out as pretty as yours.

So far I only have a double white one, very full though, and have a very large batch of plants growing that are supposed to be doubles. I should know this spring as they are definitely old enough to flower now (this will be their 3rd winter). Keeping my fingers crossed :)

Thanks for sharing!

None of them are specifically named... they're Heronswood doubles that I got before they were shut down. I sure hope they do better next year, this year they're sulking badly after being dug, potted for a year, and then replanted.

What lovely hellebore blooms!

I don't have any beautiful doubles (yet!); mine are just plain, but I did take a photo that I really love.
