Hellebores are extremely long-lived perennials that surprise us in late winter and early spring with gorgeous flowers over evergreen leaves.  Highly prized and very expensive, they are a gem in any garden.  Plant by a well-trafficked walkway so you won’t miss the blooms.  Full sun to full shade, they grow anywhere!
