Hellebores are popular among gardeners because they are drought tolerant, frost resistant, and extremely easy to grow an maintain. These ornamental perennials typically bloom in late winter or early early spring and may continue to bloom through May. In the summer months they make a great evergreen groundcover. In addition, they can be enjoyed as cut flowers in the home. Hellebores are typically planted in shady areas, however, they thrive in areas where they still receive some sunlight. Plant hellebores in front of shrubbery to create interesting contrast, or along walkways and hardscapes to attract guests.
