Many varieties of hellebores are available with upward facing flowers, making them easier to appreciate along your garden path. They are a great plant to let naturalize in a woodland garden and with patience in a few years there may be more than 50 blossoms per plant!

Tough and easy to grow, hellebores are hardy in Zones 4-9, and even colder climates with enough snow cover to protect the plants.

With great varieties to choose from, hellebores flower in the shade with little fuss. Deer and disease resistant, this perennial is essential to creating the four-season garden of your dreams.
