Three New Ivory Prince Hellebores Planted - May 2022
I brought home three Ivory Prince Hellebores from the Morton Arboretum Plant Sale and was able to get them into the ground in the border that held our lone (previously purchased) Hellebore. You can see them in the photo below: the three Ivory Prince Lenten Roses / Hellebores are now planted in a triangular shape *around* the existing Sally's Shell (now planted in the middle). This area is bordered by a large/mature Catalpa tree (you can see a peek at the trunk on the far left of this photo below).
In the coming days/weeks, I'll mulch these in and have the edge of the bed cleaned up. With four (now) in this spot, I'm hoping for some self-sowing (according to the Web...that's a thing. But, it hasn't happened for me just yet) and spreading. This area calls for ten total Hellebores, so we're getting close to half-way there.
