‘Lady’ hellebores at Fraser’s Thimble Farms

– Posted in: Recommended Links

Lynda, Fraser’s Thimble Farms was offering ‘Lady’ hellebores at their 2002 website. While you are there, make sure you check out their Japanese hepaticas. Oo la la! Collecting them could be an expensive hobby! If you search at Google using the keywords helleborus +lady (the plus sign means lady must be on the same page as helleborus) you will also find some wholesale sources, and maybe one of them would be suitable to recommend to your local grower. I think I will wait until someone on the east coast offers the ‘Lady,’ because even though they sound luscious, shipping cross-country can be prohibitive.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
