Hardy Hellebores ain't afraid ...
DEER, CLAY or SHADE!
Tough, tenacious and hardy down to USDA zone 5, Hellebores are luminescent ladies of the shade, whose nodding beautiful blooms light up the Winter and early Spring garden like no other lover! And now is the PERFECT time to plant them!
Evergreen here by the Bay (and in all temperate climes), these long-lived and reliable garden compadres won't up and die on you after a couple of years. Perhaps best of all, they're DEER, DROUGHT and CLAY resistant. Happy in shade – even dry shade – most garden pests don't bug 'em (just bait for snails when young).
Elegant, gracious flowers in a rainbow of hues smother the foliage, appearing even more magical when they catch the light when covered with rain or dew. Plant them now and prepare for good cheer! They'll appreciate average to rich soil with good drainage and make especially delightful companions to other shade lovers!
