But the plants are leggy and there aren’t any buds waiting to bloom. So, after months of bringing visions of green and white livelihood indoors, during the long cold winter, back to the earth these plants will now go.
After trimming away any dead foliage, we will tuck these plants into the Hellebore patch, located in a partially shaded bed in the courtyard. The Kalanchoes (succulents) should do nicely on the perimeter of the bed, where the eves will protect them from being over watered.
Hmmmm…this burst of green Hydrangea leaves pushing through the soil (previously potted indoors) served as a reminder of some other potted Hydrangeas, indoors, that may want a new lease on life.
Coincidentally, a friend brought over a lovely Hellebore, in a spunky bag, as a gift, how thoughtful, how timely. Look at those roots, this plant needs a larger landscape for sure!
Are you a Hellebore Hedonist? Take a visit to Santa Barbara and see the beautiful bouquet Slim Paley put together from her lush garden.
We’ll also be enjoyng the beauty of this double-flowered Amaryllis indoors, so flamboyant!
